Vinyl reissue of The Clean's 2009 album Mister Pop. Four decades ago they were the seeds of New Zealand punk. They carved out a big sandbox for everyone to play in, and their influence resonated not only in NZ but around the world.
2009's Mister Pop sees The Clean continue the great pop pastiche. Circus ragas ("Moonjumper"), hazy sunset anthems ("In the Dreamlife You Need a Rubber Soul"), and the loose Dada approach to word-smithery continue alongside "proper" lyrical forays and a few Autobahn-referential instro moments to boot ("Tensile").
