Claire’s Un Natural Twin


A nasty piece of twisted work from former Palmerston North dwellers Claire Pannell and Dave White. Claires tortured vocals spit forth tales of molestation trauma and a world of personal turmoil.

Noise by way of distortion/feedback guitar work and a barrage of chaotic percussive noise. A violent collision of the classic industrial attitude and an anarchic sound and vocal punishment

– Club Bizarre

Pannell – otherwise known as Furchick, is an Australian ex-pat of New Zealand who has also been in groups Froit Head and Air Traffic Controllers, whilst Clark is a veteran of many groups synonymous with Palmerston North such as Thin Red Line, The Clear, Lung and Baldman.

the clear turned into lung in 1991, immediately releasing a live recording of their new material (actually performing still as the clear). they actually went on to a bit more acclaim than their earlier incarnation, and had slight cult success in europe, we’re they toured in the mid 90s. the clear’s line-up of david white, brent gemmill, phil williscroft and graeme gaylor remained.
