Local 913 Episode 30: The Clarks
Like lots of young bands The Clarks began their career as a cover band. Listening to and performing songs by other artist served as a learning tool for the band, and helped the Clarks discover their own voice. In June the band released Rewind, an album of cover songs. Bass player Greg Joseph tells why the band chose to do this now.
“We wanted to give fans an insight into 30 years of what The Clarks were listening to, going all the way back to the mid-80s. We did a lot of cover songs at the beginning of our career. We started with 2 original and 30 covers and we really cherished a lot of those songs. We made sure we never lost touch with cover material. It was always a good influence and learning lesson for how our records would turn out in the future.”
