about

Dark and melancholy vocals and crunching swirling guitars, if the Velvet Underground merged their DNA with The Jam it would probably sound like this. Taking the best of 1968 and 1978 and making it very now. The new 45rpm single from The Speed Of Sound and the first release by the new expanded four piece line up, combines blistering anger on the A-side with a swirling rollercoaster ride on the flip. In 'Shut All The Clubs' early punk flavoured guitars kick hard as yet another live music venue closes to be replaced with a corporate cityscape where everywhere is the same. The B-side (and live favourite) 'Love' is a swirling rollercoaster trip into darkness.
Limited physical edition of 200
50g heavy black vinyl with full colour label, signed inner sleeve and full colour printed outer sleeve with lyrics.
Includes 'print your own' PDF cd sized sleeve.

Track Name: Shut All The Clubs
Shut All The Clubs:
Business invests and business infests
The developers dream runs wild
Bohemia shrinks the public blinks
The city is restyled
A glass fronted gym and retail opportunities
Make up the empire of the bland
The heart of the city is replaced with empty offices
The developers rub their hands
The artists move out as rents shoot up
Atmosphere makes its final stand
The heart of the city beats its last as computers boot up
The development goes as planned
Business invests business divests
The developers dream runs wild
Bohemia shrinks the public drinks
And the city is defiled
Corporatise, sanitise, big it up with PR lies,
Shut all the clubs tear down the pubs
Sear it all and cauterise
So that we can have more luxury flats
'Cos living in the city - thats where its at
