Wheeltappers and Shunters
after a seven-year hiatus, Liverpool’s cherished post-punk pop experimentalists return with a spacey odyssey into a psych-tinged galaxy.
“We thought it felt right to make a fun, dancefloor album in these dark and conservative times,” Blackburn continues. Fun, sure, but this is Clinic – their brand of fun oozes with menace. The Great Britain that Clinic are evoking is not some ancient, bucolic past, but a rather more sleazy place of distorted reality. 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, the album is an absolute blast, rich in detail and sonic intrigue, those precious minutes stuffed with ideas.
