You’ve got to hand it to any band who describes B-sides on its own website as “Multiple formats, ironic cover versions, unplugged exclusives, and absolute shit that didn’t even make it onto a generic album. Buyers beware the world of contemporary b-sides and thinly veiled extortion.” And when that band then goes ahead and releases a compilation of its flip sides from the first ten years of their existence? They must have nothing but big and undoubtedly scrumptious balls.
In the unlikely event you’re interested in who the owners of the tasty testicles are -- well, who else but Scouse-groove magicians Clinic! FUNF is the name of the album, and despite the fact that the B-sides, they claim, are “riddled with unprofessionalism and unruly failures,” I reckon when they say that, they’re just being a bunch of cheeky little monkeys. Let me assure you that there is a ton of stuff on FUNF that’ll get you right in the mood for a night of dancing and puking at the local Top Rank club. And you’ve got plenty of time to wash your cock and get your mum to iron your Farah slacks for the big night out; the record won’t appear in your local stores until June 18 in the UK.
