Fans of one of New Zealand’s most influential bands – The Clean - are in for a double treat over the next few months. First up on 30th of June 2008, Arch Hill will be releasing a live album called “Mashed” featuring cuts taken from their March 07 New Zealand tour. Several thousand keen cleaners attended these shows and everyone will have their favorite memory. Ours is a toss up between the almost riot-like stage invading conditions at the Leigh Sawmill Café (with David soloing under the grand piano) and the Spinal Tap wig fest at Russel Brown’s asperger’s fundraiser. Tough call – but they sounded great. Either way, we can all now enjoy David’s reverberant guitar echoing above the furious and distinctive rhythm section of brother Hamish and bassman Bob. The album was recorded and mixed by the very talented Tex Houston and contains classics like Point That Thing and Anything Could Happen, along with a new song and a surprise cover.

And speaking of new songs, you can also expect a new studio album from the Clean soon also on Arch Hill. This was recorded in New York - where Hamish lives and the band recently played a series of sold out shows – and Dunedin when the band reunited to play at The Big Day out earlier this year.

And in David Kilgour solo news, he will be playing in Los Angeles on the 28th August as part of the Dont Knock The Rock Film & Music Festival where the Kilgour documentary Far Off Town is screening followed by a performance by David and a talk by co-director Bridget Sutherland. Extra California gigs may be added.

David Kilgour will also be playing a solo set opening for Samuel Flynn Scott and the BOP on the 20th of July at the Backstage in Dunedin
