Lazarus Clamp - the bird is not the metaphor album
THE SUNDAY TIMES (Stewart Lee): "Thirtysomething
Englishmen whose fifth album lays articulate and considered lyrics
over unexpectedly experimental textures and deconstructed skinny
guitar licks." BEARDED: "This is a gem, blending Yo La Tengo, The
Evens and fIREHOSE. Sulky, brooding and utterly brilliant."
During 2014-15, Lazarus Clamp will celebrate twenty
years of bloody-minded music-making with the release of their 6th
and finest album to date. The band started playing together in
Leicester in 1994 and have released music with the cream of the
UK's DIY labels including Bearos, Amberley, Words & Works
Rejected, Vespertine and Jonathan Whiskey. They have toured and
played with David Grubbs, Julie Doiron, The New Year, Ligament,
Songs: Ohia, Giant Sand and Laura Cantrell.
