Alex Clare is just the sort of musician you’re glad is still being made in the country’s basements, backrooms and bedrooms. Born and bred in South East London and raised on his dad’s bebop records, as a child Alex toyed with the trumpet before taking up the drums to help him get rid of all his nervous energy. Growing up he was into jungle and UK Garage and listened to voodoo blues of Dr John and the street corner harmonies of Snooks Eaglin. He performs at The Aztec Theater on December 13.
