Song Of The Day
In the band's hometown of Manchester, most people won't cite Working For A Nuclear Free City as an obvious example of their musical heritage. In the UK they're fairly obscure - rarely playing gigs - and although no tour dates have been announced despite the band releasing a new album next week.
WFANFC's lack of concern for convention isn't isolated to their approach to promotion. They're completely unconcerned with genre and make some of the most intriguing music around.
New track "Run" showcases a fusion of mutant funk, fried electronics, and twisted pop that combine to make something unquestionably their own.
Meanwhile, Gary McClure, the co-founding member of the band , found success with lo-fi solo project American Wrestlers
over on the other side of the pond. After releasing tracks on Bandcamp, respected indie label Captured Tracks
re-released it last year. At that point McClure claimed WFANFC were over.
To our delight, WFANFC had unfinished business and they're back stronger than ever with "Run". Their new album What Do People Do All Day?
is released next week (29 January) via Melodic
. Someone give them a gig please.
