The new Clodge site!

Welcome to the redesigned Cathartic Lodge site! If you must visit the old site, don't click here because the link died long ago!

Clodge is a – er – unique band from South Wales, land of the hills, valleys, rain, steep slopes, valleys, rain, precipitation and wet weather. The songwriter can't sing and doesn't have any useful instruments (apart from his fantasy blade collection) so our music tends to be a little odd; we're more of a theoretical concept band, really, although we are taking it all a little too seriously at the moment and may end up actually producing something at some point. I'm sure we could find the right skills somewhere.

The Clodgers are shocked to have learned of the death of Michael Blakey in India, where he has been functioning with charity Tong-Len.
Michael joined Clodge shortly after its inception in 2002. He resigned in 2004 because there was too much snipping.
