Pet Clinic’s video for “Sick Witch” was inspired by the band’s recent bouts of sleep paralysis. “I’ve had a collection of 3-foot-high creatures hold a seance around me. Our drummer, Kenny, has experienced a dark humanoid ready to pounce from the shadows. In Louisiana they call it ‘witch riding’ because the ‘witch’ climbs onto your chest and rides you all night and you wake up exhausted. In Japan they call it the ‘night hag,’” says keyboardist John Henderson.
_Pet Clinic — David Bubenheim, John Henderson, Ian Edwards, Kenneth Nelson, and Mike Arendt — recently released their album ;No Face;, which is full of raw, ’90s rock, reminiscent of Gish-era Smashing Pumpkins. Opener “Sick Witch” is no exception. _
“The song itself is screaming from the same nightmare where we are forced to peel the layers of lies and manipulation that infect our identity, forcing them into the open so that by acknowledging them we can try to cleanse the psyche,” says Henderson.
