The Clock catalogue is not cohesive, but probably as a result the gems were in thicker supply than most seem to remember.
That was a very good interview once it got going, especially since they were clearly having some in-jokes between themselves at the start (and I almost choked sipping my coffee when they replied "of course not" after she said no drugs entered Clock!)
Q: "Was it a difficult time when Marcus left?"
*erupts into laughter*
A: "I think Marcus was very used to being the top front man".
I especially enjoyed the commentary and insight on the shift in Clock's style in parallel with N-Trance doing the same. And I love that she got more and more enthusiastic as it went on.
The mention of Jake Canuso - gosh, what 90s UK-based female-driven dance video was he not in? I had such a crush (I remember thinking he was one of the leads in Queers As Folk).
The MN8 "Clock-in friends" tid bit.
And ending on her not having a clue about something a super fan loves immensely - perfect. I'll be listening again.
I'm now going to put Fly Away on now. What a mega happy hardcore-esque banger.
A couple of their later disco hits
They scored 14 hits between 1994 and 1999 and were for a time pitched as "the British 2 Unlimited"
No idea what Marcus "the ODC MC" is up to now. Unfortunately they never reformed and Lorna isn't interested in coming back herself, but there's a new tribute act doing the 90s circuit

Whaaaaat? That’s the Urban Cookie Collective lady - Danielle. So she’s now in Clock Collective!
They should've called themselves Clock Crew
Like the crude flash animations from newgrounds back in the day??? Haha
