If you remember the day-glow dork punk (I just thought of that, and I quite likes it) of Bis, Steven Clark will be a vaguely familiar figure in his guise as Sci-Fi Steven.

It’s as you were for Clark, who takes his angular take on art/punk, which sits comfortably next to the much lamented Cardiacs, and Blur at their most experimental. For all its willful experimentalism and DIY ethic, Clark has jam packed it with singalong chorus’, inexcusably catchy riffs and gloopy melodic synths, and kicked them over his particular pogo stick.
