History[edit]

The first commercial release featuring Clive Painter was a 12” single called “Falling” by a duo he formed in 1990 with Joanne Taylor called Isadora Beech. The single was released in 1991 on the Cherry Red subsidiary label MFF.[4] [5]

In 1994 Clive Painter formed the cult band Broken Dog with Martine Roberts and the following year they were signed to Big Cat Records and released their first album in 1996. John Peel became a fan of Broken Dog and over the next eight years they were invited by him to record four peel sessions and made numerous other appearances on his Radio 1 show. Broken Dog have release five albums and a handful of singles/EPs. [6]

In 1997 Clive Painter began working on the production of the first Tram (band) singles and their debut album Heavy Black Frame. On which he played guitar, bass, harmonium, percussion and clarinet. He co-produced the album with the guitarist and singer Paul Anderson and played live with Tram until 1999.[7] He also appears on Tram’s first session for John Peel recorded in 1998.[8] In 2009 Clive Painter and Paul Anderson formed a new band called The 99 Call.

At the same time as working on Heavy Black Frame Clive Painter was working on recordings by Monograph (band) which were released on Shinkansen Recordings.[9] [10] He also produced several singles for the London based Piao! Label by artists such as Girlfrendo and Miss Mend.

Live soundtrack performances of this film have taken place at the BFI Southbank, The Tate Modern, The Moscow Film Festival and The Belfast Film Festival. [12][13][14][15]

Clive Painter has been credited as a Mastering Engineer for numerous independent record labels since 1999 and as such has worked with a variety of artists such as Part Chimp,[16] Chris TT,[17] Ivor Cutler [18] and Comes With A Smile magazine.[19]
