mr and mrs clientele used to frequent this place, maybe they will help you out on their return.

new shows have been announced via the groups mailing list which you can join at http://www.missprint.org/lacewings. unfortunately i deleted the email that contained those dates so i can't quote them here.

i'm very sad, however, that they won't be playing in london between september 13th and 26th when i'll be there. seeing them would make the price of airfare a less bitter pill to swallow.

Um.. you've probably seen this by now, but this is all the news:

September 29th - Gig at Bush Hall in London

7" single out in November - "Haunted Melody"/"Breathing Soft & Low" (Merge/Pointy)

November 15 - Knitting Factory NYC

November 16 - Maxwells Hoboken

November 17 - Middle East Boston

(Possible Show in Europe)

January/February 2003 - Untitled Album

Sometime to follow album - 2 or 3 week tour of US


Compilation appearances (Chickfactor - "Rain" and on a Secretly Canadian side project label thing - "Grass won't pay no mind (live)")

The other thing is that the Lost Weekend EP second pressing got all messed up - so that somepeople are getting a CD that says Clientele on it, but which actually contains 10 tracks by Vitesse. !!

five years pass...

new EP "That Night, a Forest Grew" coming out soon.
a song from it - "share the light" is available via myspace.

let me say that i hope the rest of the ep is better than this song

wow. you're not kidding. that white boy soul they are attempting is tired tired tired.

Yeah, upon reflection, the song is distressingly pedestrian.

Still one of my favorite bands. And, obv., it's okay to experiment with their sound, especially on an EP.

This is the best possible news ever. The Clientele is my favorite band!

Completely unrelated- I was recently thinking about how it's kind of funny that you can probably assemble a pretty long album of Clientele songs that all consist of guitar stabs w/ psychedelic guitar solo jams.
I feel like those songs were indicative of a compositional rut they were experiencing late in their career. I mean, the intricate jazz chord reverb plucking style is not easy to write with. I can see the guitar stab + psychedelic solo thing being so much less of a pain to write, especially if the guitar-melody-well is a little drier otherwise.

Gorgeous song.
