New Band To Burn One To (Evening Buzz): Van Cleef

The Evening Buzz edition of "New Band To Burn One To" today features Van Cleef.


Sex, science and exorcism.

VAN CLEEF are writing the soundtrack to their own race with the devil - blending dirty widescreen blues with psychedelic space rock.

Feedback basted.
A tad chewy.

Formed in 2008.

Played a shitload of gigs local and interstate with plenty more to come.

Touring Europe in 2012.

5 track demo 'Lynching Hymns' released in 08

7 track E.P 'Intergalactic Porn Swamp' in 09 (sold out)

Released their debut full length album 'WHERE THE RIVER MEETS THE ROCK' in December 2010.

Music Video - DALEK GULCH launched onlineMay 20 2011.

Van Cleef is
Mike Gordon - vocs/keys
Christian Thompson- guitar
Adam Lloyd - bass
Jonah Rudd - drums

As I listened to Aussie band Van Cleef, I couldn't help but notice a bit of eighties influence spattered amongst their spaghetti western tinged space-rock. Bands such as The Pixies and Talking Heads come to mind. Let the steady driving beat, crazed lyrics and utter weirdness guide you towards the sun. Check out their sultry cover of John Stewart's classic "Gold".
