Hamish Kilgour and the Bad Francs
Hamish Kilgour and the Bad Francs
New Zealand musician (drummer and guitaris), Hamish Kilgour of famed New Zealand band The Clean, is releasing a new album (Badabing Records) titled FinkleStein. In support of this release, Hamish Kilgour and the Bad Francs are performing and will collect monies to benefit the Cirque D'Finc, the National Circus, who are stranded in NYC and can't get out of town. Also donating performances are Pleasure Prince, Sugarlife, Disaster Deluxe, MC Mr Funny Business and Projections by L. Mark Shaw. Finklestein is the soundtrack to a story that was going to be written for Hamish Kilgour’s 12-year-old son Taran. It's about a mythical kingdom that has run out of gold - what will they do? Kilgour never got around to writing the story itself, but the album evolved over a year at Marlborough Farms, the basement studio of his friend Gary Olson, a Brooklyn born-and-raised engineer and producer (and lead singer of The Ladybug Transistor)

In 1978, The Clean were the seeds of New Zealand, and as such, they carved out a big sandbox for everyone to play in. Their influence resonated not only in New Zealand but around the world. Not only do bands like Yo La Tengo, Guided By Voices, Sonic Youth, Pavement, and their ilk owe a debt to The Clean, but many of today’s young upstarts such as Times New Viking, Eat Skull, and a band from China called Carsick Cars have the Dunedin godfathers deeply etched into their DNA.The Clean’s modern age has seen them splitting time and hemispheres: David has a reputable solo catalog; Bob has The Bats; and Hamish has been an endearing and enduring fixture in New York City, playing with assorted combos and releasing new albums."
