Clinic’s cassette factory production line opens for one night only at Static Gallery, Getintothis’ Darren Aston captures the assembly line in action.
Clinic performed new material from their seventh studio album Free Reign at Static Gallery earlier this month.
What made the gig so unique was the cassette production line installation set up by artists David Hand and Sam Wiehl alongside Static’s director Paul Sullivan.
Using four seperate parts of the gallery the audience, limited to 200, were able to press play and record the gig using hundreds of donated cassette players while Static operatives package and then sold the analogue recordings after the Clinic have finished playing.
