THE KLIEK - ME RIGHT NOW




22. THE KLIEK - 'Me Right Now'/'Nothing's Changed' (Twist Records 6) 1993

Amsterdam was the home of this fine combo who mixed obscure Euro beat and American garage with their own compositions. They built up a massive reputation with their live performances and released many records on various indie labels in the late 80s and early 90s.

'Me Right Now' is a faithful rendition of The Remains classic and The Kliek really do the song justice. Covering a song by the legendary Remains could have been a disaster but thankfully they pull it off with astute skill and a decent production.

The flip 'Nothing's Changed' is a moody beat song originally recorded by The Zombies and is another winner.

line-up:
Robert Muter (vocals)
Marcel Kruup (guitar)
Theo Brouwer (bass)
The Gub (drums)

When The Kliek disbanded in the mid 90s Robert Muter formed Kek'66.
