After an unprecedented seven year break, Clinic, Liverpool’s cherished post punk pop experimentalists return with album number eight, released by Domino. The unusual name is taken from the long-forgotten 1970s ITV variety show ‘The Wheeltappers and Shunters Social Club’, compered by Bernard Manning, which recreated the smoky, boozy atmosphere of Northern working men’s clubs for a sofa-bound audience.

“It’s been a pisstake thing between us for quite a few years,” reveals Ade Blackburn, Clinic spokesman, of the show that the album title references. “Whenever we’d talk about a song sounding too ‘cabaret’ or too nice, we’d say, ‘That’s a bit Wheeltappers and Shunters’.”

The album was recorded last year in founding bandmember Hartley’s Liverpool studio, before they brought in Dilip Harris (King Krule, Sons Of Kemet, Mount Kimbie) to mix it.

Indies only opaque red vinyl.
