|Band Name:||Clint Bracknell|
Clint Bracknell began gigging in bands at age 14 and in 1999 moved to the city where he joined locally acclaimed rock-groovers Longbo Tom. Making the finals of the Next Big Thing and National Campus Bands Comps the following year, Longbo Tom played gigs all around the state, supported Magic Dirt, The Titanics and David Bridie and released two recordings, the debut single Dynamite and a self titled demo, selling all 100 copies at its launch.
Clint left Australia for the mountains of Japan in 2002 and returned as a solo act in 2005.
Inspired by jamming with artists like Kev Carmody, Clint draws on pre-rock influences - the primal stomp of John Lee Hooker and the sophisticated virtuosity of Robert Johnson - in forging his own distinctive sound and songs about love, death, identity, sex and servos.
Clint produced the five-track EP You'll Want More In Time in 2006 and has since supported Archie Roach, Birds of Tokyo, Mick Hart and Stiff Gins. Indigenous to the south-west of WA, Clint has worked as a music educator in the Swan area since 2006.
