London punks Working Men’s Club are back with 4 new tracks of frantic, chaotic hardcore.
Clocking in just under 6 minutes, “Premium Champion” is a melee of raucous guitars, pounding drums and gutteral screams that doesn’t loosen its grip ’till its finished slapping you round the face. Spanning influences including 90s hardcore, beatdown hardcore, thrash & d-beat, Working Men’s Club deal in obnoxious songs with disgusting riffs, all played by four old punks. Having played together since late 2016 and a demo, EP & split under their belt, “Premium Champion” is the next step towards a debut LP. For fans of Fucking Invincible, His Hero Is Gone, The Swarm, Friendship, Down In The Dirt.
Working Men’s Club aren’t the band you want, it’s the band you deserve.

Threatening, pulsing synths paint this whole record with a metallic, palpable menace. Reminds me of Coil, or Chris & Cosey, in the ability to get an emotional response with a limited palette. pierrelefou
