New Clinic Video – “Corpus Christi” (Live On BBC Merseyside)

Maybe it’s those masks, but whether Clinic are hanging out in a VU lava lamp or rocking amid Stan Brakhage splices, the internal wranglers manage to conjure that same detached feel. Put your hand over your mouth and nose. See how cool you look? Yeah, it’s the masks. That said, even when the lads perform Do It!‘s “Corpus Christi” on BBC, with some off-stage clappers, you get the sense they’re in their own hygienic universe.


The zoom-y camera work, which runs counter to Clinic’s usual approach, is a bit much for right after lunch. But all said, another solid song made to look effortless.

Do It! is out via Domino. You can see them and their Stooges wigs live in May:
