“…Very much rate this, and certainly don’t think that Wire, Alternative TV, Sauna Youth and Institute’s Catharsis LP are excessively flattering reference points…” The Quietus

“…catnip for fans of Protomartyr or The Fall…” The Ransom Note

“…sounds as though it was recorded in a working sawmill…” Hard of Hearing Music

“…The sound this four piece create, recalls those early Wire recordings, Joy Division cassettes and Gang of Four bootlegs at least one mate would own having sneaked a cassette recorder into the venue to record and listen to a few weeks later….” Louder Than War

Kick the Clown are a 4 piece punk outfit from Worcester. Their presence has been praised as “loud”, “energetic” and “in your face”. They combine swagger, rare charisma and DIY ethos to create controlled chaos on stage. The band claims every inch of the floor as their own, bringing wild melodies, shouts, sweat, pain and clown masks to enthral the audience and drags them (kicking and screaming) into an alternative musical dimension.

Kick The Clown are coming and are getting rowdier with every show.
You have been warned!
