Clint Bo Dean: “Private Poet”


One of DNRC’s worst-kept secrets (not to mention its worst made-up face) is the running gag known as Clint Bo Dean. Bo Dean, whose musical influences could do with an update or three thousand, is a real muso’s muso, refusing to release recorded tracks in any format (hence this rare 1980s style picture disk, featuring an interview with Stung and a couple of shots of Clint blowing his nose), and only performing live when he is drunk enough to chuck. CBD, as he is known to his legionnaires, encapsulates all things poetic here, as he tackles the only song he’s ever really understood: Tina Turner’s “Private Dancer”, managing to fuse the spirit of Bachman Turner Overdrive with that of Michael J Fox as he appeared in The Secret of My Success. Bold, brassy and quite posisbly bonkers, Clint Bo Dean is every hair stylist’s nightmare. And that includes you, Brian.
