Claytown Troupe – Through The Veil – Vinyl Record

Through The Veil is the debut album by the British rock band Claytown Troupe, released in 1989.

Formed in Bristol and Weston-Super-Mare by lead singer Christian Riou in 1984, who claimed in an NME interview that a famous local clairvoyant advised him to form a band called the Clayton Troop!
The Claytown Troupe became an Alt-Rock act touted as a cross between The Cult’s fake rock and the authentic crusty rock of Pop Will Eat Itself and Crazyhead married with the passion of New Model Army.

Through The Veil showcases Claytown Troupe’s unique blend of alternative rock, post-punk, and blues influences. The album features gritty guitar riffs, driving rhythms, and impassioned vocals, creating a raw and energetic sound that sets the band apart from their contemporaries.

Tracks like “Hey Lord,” “Prayer,” and “Chiricahua Sun” exemplify the band’s distinctive style and songwriting prowess. The album’s lyrics often explore themes of spirituality, social commentary, and personal introspection, reflecting the band members’ diverse influences and creative vision.

Back in the late 80’s this lot were the only real alternative to The Cult. More anthemic and more authentic than Astbury & Co. Moving a few hundred thousand units internationally over their short period in the limelight, they even broke the UK top 40 before disappearing.

Through The Veil received positive reviews upon its release and helped establish Claytown Troupe as one of the rising stars in the British rock scene of the late 1980s. The album remains a cult classic among fans of alternative and indie rock, praised for its raw intensity and authentic approach to music.
