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".
