Clameen Genies

Stuart Bailie

Late Show Presenter

Surely you will love The Clameens. Youthful beat-merchants from Derry, raved about by Soak, by Stephen McCauley at Radio Foyle and profiled this Monday past by Radio Ulster’s ATL. That’s Sean, Ryan, Hayden and Ethan, with freshness in their bones and a seeming affection for Alex Turner and Peter Doherty. The vocals are smartly declaimed, the drumming is brisk and sweet and new release ‘She’s Got My Heart’ is a certified pop tune that finds Sean in an unrequited discussion with another girl in the neighbourhood. Ah, those Derry wans.

 You can see them at Glasgowbury and at Stendhal Festival. They play well, they have energy and you would hope that this unreliable music palaver will give them a positive run at it.

They Clameen it, man.
