Biography

Clem Snide began in Boston in the early 1990s. It was there Eef Barzelay and good friends Eric Paul and Jason Glasser first performed under that moniker. The band dissolved when Eef Barzelay moved to New York where he briefly dabbled in the Sidewalk Café anti-folk scene before reconnecting with Glasser to reform the band and begin work on their first record “You Were A Diamond.” Their artistic… Read more in Amazon's Clem Snide Store

truly beautiful January 20, 2004
By jill
Format:Audio CD
this CD is worth purchasing for the cover of "i'll be your mirror" alone... hauntingly beautiful, of late i have had it on repeat... a good intro to the band if you don't already know them... all of the rest of their CDs are truly worth it, a hidden gem that unfortunately not enough people seem to know about yet... catch them live if you can, eef has a wonderful sense of humor and their performances are always right on. can't wait til they record the ryan adams song.

Covers with substance December 5, 2003
Format:Audio CD
A nice gathering of Clem Snide songs - released recordings from the old (Nick Drake Tape) to new (All Green) - but the highlights for those that already own You Were A Diamond (1998) and Soft Spot (2003) are the first releases of live cover staples "Beautiful" and "I'll Be Your Mirror", as well as the [highly] original "Mike Kalinsky".

It's hard to say what somebody new to Clem Snide would say about "Beautiful", but to fans it further demonstrates the band's ability to make covers their own. This is Clem Snide performing a song called "Beautiful", not Clem Snide doing a cover of a top-40 tune for ironic effect. Frontman Eef Barzelay means this song when he sings it. In my case, it made me take the song seriously for once.

Clem Snide turns "I'll Be Your Mirror" into one of theirs also. It gets better with every listen; the delivery comes from the heart. (As someone who had never heard the original, I was shocked that Barzelay was able to hear through Nico's drooping performance to find the song we hear on this EP)

The live recording of "Nick Drake Tape" is sublime, as is "All Green" (from Soft Spot). Only "Mike Kalinsky" feels slightly out of place. Very popular at shows, I like to think this is a glimpse into the band's previous life in the early 90's. In company with four other songs it makes for a jarring surprise. Eef's probably smiling at that, though.

the new Clem Snide EP November 10, 2003
Format:Audio CD
'Beautiful' is a new EP of Clem Snide favorites. Since there's no track listings posted thus far, here goes:
-the band's version of Christina Aguilera's "Beautiful"
-a live cover of the the Velvet Underground classic "I'll Be Your Mirror" (recorded live at WFUV)
-the 'Soft Spot' single "All Green"
-the Clem Snide classic "Nick Drake Tape", also recorded live at WFUV
-the previously unreleased track "Mike Kalinsky."

It's not a good introduction to the band, but it's a must-have for fans.
