Clinic – The Witch

...like Dick Dale doing Whiter Shade Of Pale

Liverpool band Clinic have a knack of making their brand of psychedelic rock sound like it’s from the middle ages as opposed to the 1960’s.

So it’s barely a surprise when they eventually get round to openly referring to “the witch hunt”, for which they have been providing the soundtrack all these years. As ever, the new single from their forthcoming fifth album Do It, is drenched in swirling organs, buzzing guitars and Ade Blackburn’s chanting vocals. The rather jaunty rhythm is new but adds the pleasing effect of making it sound like Dick Dale doing Whiter Shade Of Pale.
