C L O Ww N S

Groucho Marx once said "Clowns work as well as aspirin, but twice as fast" and all the world loves a clown right? Especially when they teeter atop a post-punk avant-pop tightrope of angular riffs, driving beats and lyrics which seem spewed forth from modernist authors of dissent.

Helmed by songwriting team Andrew Claridge (guitar) and Miles Heathfield (Vocal) with backing from Etienne Rodes (Bass), Damo Waters (Drums) C L O Ww N S have conjured up a host of comparisons from early Adam and the Antz to John Cale to 80's Matchbox B-Line Disaster, and invokes indie-avant-post-punk giants The Cardiacs and The Cravats.

"Combining literary lyricism with equal opportunities rabble-rousing, anthemic melodies and pounding riffs, Clowwns songs are glorious Trojan horses... Some of the best and brightest pop-rock guitar music of recent years." THE QUIETUS

'A strange & wonderful Art-Punk-Glam band from Brighton, CLOWwNS are possibly the best band in the UK' - Louder Than War

"Without a doubt one of Brighton's finest live bands... They rock like one mean bastard." Brighton Source
