REWIND: Clinic - 'Monkey On Your Back'

Not sure why I felt like featuring this classic Clinic track for today's 'Rewind', sometimes I just go by pure instinct. To my knowledge this was the first Clinic song I ever heard, after catching it on John Peel's show or The Evening Session, not entirely sure which one. 15 years later it still sounds like one hell of a tune. Still a great band now in fact, as last year's 'Free Range' proved. I never owned a copy of 'Monkey On Your Back' at the time, but last year I managed to pick up a copy of the 'Clinic' CD that collects the tracks from the band's first 3 EPs, for a bargain £1 from a charity shop in Swindon. What a find. Must go and see Clinic live again sometime, since it's been 13 years since the last time, at Leeds festival. 'The Second Line' was featured as one of 'Song For Today''s back in November 2011 HERE.
