Back To Clay
Imagine all the elements of a category 5 hurricane, and right in the middle of that storm is the most beautiful sunset… that’s The Clay People.
Wether it’s seeing a live show or just listening to TCP, there’s a connection made very quickly between band and audience, – a sense of comfort knowing if you had a rough day, or are feeling down, you can count on TCP to take you away from all that
On Demon Hero Neet takes on the corrupting influence of modern politics, the silver tongue of the modern demagogue, the ills of groupthink and the band’s experience with the music industry. “I’ve been plagiarized. I’ve been beat up. I’ve been manipulated….And we’ve got nothing left to lose,” Neet confesses on the anthem “Bloodletter.”
