The trend for excavating the 80s shows no sign of abating, although surely it won't take too long for people to get bored of the whole idea. I should think the bubble will burst when Tony Robinson and his Time Team set out to discover the mythical Cube of Rubik. The likes of The Bravery will have their heads in their hands on that day and no mistaking.
Not so Clor though. They have managed to find a part of the 80s that precious few had remembered: the rarely recalled art house pop that occasionally made forays into the top 40 all those years ago. Good Stuff may have an icy cold production, but there's a bass so funky it's positively daring you to shake your ass and forget about dancing like a robot. More importantly, Clor seem quite content to twist what could be a really straightforward pop vehicle into something quite odd indeed. Vocalist Barry Dobbin recalls the likes of pop-weirdoes Devo and that only adds to the general feeling that Clor are something quite unusual and pretty special.
This is good stuff indeed, and Clor's unique approach to revivalism should ensure their survival when the walls come tumbling down on the 80s once again.
