Best Low-Key Show From a Kiwi Rock Legend - 2008
November 3, 2007
In the late '70s, David Kilgour started the Clean with his brother and a friend. That band went on to influence not only New Zealand's underground music scene, but musicians around the world who saw that music could be raw, imaginative and fun all at once. The Clean never became a household name in the United States, but thirty years and several solo albums later, Kilgour toured the U.S. in support The Far Now, and ended up playing here this past November. With a rare grace and an impressive ear for timeless melodies, he and his band gave one of the most memorable performances of the year and even treated the audience to an early Clean classic, a lively rendition of "Tally Ho."
