In your definitions file, you could have:

clfBsUp = {
        \override Staff.OctavateEight #'extra-offset = #'(-0.3 . -1.2)
        \clef "bass^8"

In the music, you would type:


Adjust the extra-offset numbers to suit. This command will alter all
subsequent octavated clefs throughout the piece on the one staff in which it
is used. So, if you have a clef change to "treble^8", you'll need:

        \revert Staff.OctavateEight #'extra-offset

or perhaps create a command to ensure the treble8 clef's integrity:

clfTrUp = {             %       untested
        \revert Staff.OctavateEight #'extra-offset
        \clef "treble^8"
