- 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.
- CD in capacity wallet. LP on heavyweight black vinyl with digital download card.
