MXDWN PREMIERE: The Dirty Clergy Release Slow Burning Garage Rock Song “Born to Lose”
By Matthew Matasci
The Dirty Clergy are back with a new song with guitarist Brian Manasco taking over the vocal duties, helming a classic-sounding garage rock style. The new song we’re premiering today is “Born To Lose,” which was written by Manasco when he was receiving autonomic testing.
“I wrote ‘Born to Lose’ while at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN,” Manasco said. “I had been sent there for autonomic testing as I was diagnosed with dysautonomia/POTS. I wrote it from the view of someone who just gets dumped on every which way they turn. Try to do good, it doesn’t work, do the best in relationships, doesn’t work. In the end you have to look out for yourself, because chances are no one else is going to. No matter what they tell you.”
“The video is in reverse,” he said. “It was just another way that we could do a video that didn’t closely relate anything we had done before.”
