Clinic - Wheeltappers and Shunters (VINYL ALBUM)

Hear ye, hear ye! Roll up, roll up! Welcome to Wheeltappers and Shunters! After an unprecedented seven year break, Clinic, Liverpool's cherished post-punk pop experimentalists return with album number eight, released onMay 10th, 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.

For most bands about to enter their third decade as an entity the well would be running dry, but eight albums in and Clinic still retain the ability to surprise. Clocking in at just over 28 minutes, Wheeltappers and Shuntersis an absolute blast, rich in detail and sonic intrigue, those precious minutes stuffed with ideas. "We'd released albums like clockwork every two years, so it seemed natural to have a break," Blackburn reveals. "It allowed everyone to do some quite oddball stuff, away from Clinic. I think we all wanted a bit more freedom."
