Clinic have announced their new album, ‘Wheeltappers and Shunters’.
Due for release on 10th May, the news arrives with new song ‘Rubber Bullets’ – check it out below.
“It’s been a pisstake thing between us for quite a few years,” says Ade Blackburn of their new album title. “Whenever we’d talk about a song sounding too ‘cabaret’ or too nice, we’d say, ‘That’s a bit Wheeltappers and Shunters’.
“It’s a satirical take on British culture – high and low,” he continues of the record’s themes. “It fascinates me that people look back on the 1970s as the glory days. It’s emerged that there was a darker, more perverse side to that time. When you look back on it now it was quite clearly there in mainstream culture.”
