Kliché was a Danish rock band from Aarhus (1977-1985), influenced by new wave sounds like Kraftwerk, punk rock, Devo, and David Bowie. They had, however, a distinct sound mainly due to lead singer Lars Hug 's original voice. They would semi-ironically quote Mao Zedong and Buddha and perform in uniforms - often coloured overalls.

After break-up[edit]

  • The lead singer, Lars Hug began his solo career in 1984 and has released several albums and singles as Lars Hug and later as Lars H.U.G. (Lars Hugh Uno Grammy).
  • After Hug left the band, the remaining members released a single album titled Dobbelt Plus under the name Voss/Torp/Brill made up of three former members of Kliché, Johnny Voss, Nils Torp and Anders Brill.
  • Nils Torp, later formed the band Souvenirs as a duo with Sofie Bonde.
