Biography

Born in Christchurch, Jay Clarkson was a founder member of The Playthings (1980-82), who recorded for Toy Love bassist Paul Kean’s label Playmusic. In 1983 Clarkson formed They Were Expendable (later shortened to The Expendables), and they showcased her songwriting. Her next band, Breathing Cage, won the Rheineck Rock Award in 1989 and, as part of the prize, recorded the critically acclaimed Misericord album. In 1993 Flying Nun released Packet, a compilation of songs from Clarkson’s solo work and earlier Expendables releases. Her most recent release is Kindle (Arclife, 1999), which Chris Knox described as “simply, SIMPLY gorgeous! Nine songs of unassuming, casual beauty.”
