This will put a smile on your face: The Clean’s first single ‘Tally Ho!’  from 1981.

Probably New Zealand’s finest and most influential band, The Clean thrummed and thrilled their first 3-chords when brothers David & Hamish Kilgour and Robert Scott got together in 1978.

Their quirky, melodic, lo-fi drum, bass, guitar and Chris Montez style organ produced generation identifying music, which made The Clean as original as The Fall, as seminal as The Ramones, as lovable as The B-52s, as clever as Orange Juice, as passionate as The Violent Femmes and still as hiply relevant today.
