The Clean

The Clean's debut single, 'Tally Ho!', was recorded for $60 and was key in establishing legendary jangly guitar label Flying Nun. It sailed into the New Zealand Top 20, and EP Boodle Boodle Boodle made the Top 5. The pioneering "indie-godfathers" are cited as formative influences on Pavement, and a swag of US alternative bands swayed by the southern charms of their fuzzy low-fi guitar-pop. The Dunedin punk rockers (the Kilgour bros, Robert Scott) have reunited intermittently, and most recently recorded 2009 album Mister Pop.
