Clementine bring back Nirvana inspired rock

E-mail Print PDF

I was sad to cut Sam Weber’s show short at the Owl because I wanted to catch Taitainium productions presentation of Vancouver trio Clementine at the Slice, Wednesday, Aug. 22.

 Instead I ended up missing local band Frege’s Puzzle and caught my first taste of local rock band HoverKraft. They played a solid set of drums and bass heavy alternative rock which drowned out their lead singer, who did her best to sing appealing melodies. 

They delved a little into more grunge influenced ’90s rock and made way for Clementine, who completely embraced their inner ’90s child.

 The high energy  trio sounded like the ghost of Nirvana with a touch of the Pixies and Bush and a few modern influences like Monster Truck and Black Thunder. In addition to a set of heavy, noisy, detuned, mostly original music, they also added a cover of Nirvana’s “Breed.”Hoverkraft opening for Clementine. photo by Richard Amery
