Some good old-fashioned idiosyncrasy from Concretism here. For Concrete And Country synthesises much of the Great British oddball lineage - the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, Ghost Box Records, Public Service Broadcasting etc. - with a newly-resurfaced Cold War paranoia. It’s the aural equivalent of a day out in Dungeness. The fact that the artwork was done by Richard Littler (the brains behind Scarfolk) only adds to the sense of strangeness.
Staff note from Clinton:
It's literally music for our customers, this. We've done really well with the last two releases but from what we've heard so far this one could be even more down your street. Lots of Boards of Canada references (obviously) but also John Carpenter, nuclear war, and horrible grey buildings. Just like the one we work in.

9/10 Lord Lucozade Customer review, 21st April 2018
Mutually Assured Distraction from this 'Boards of Canada meets John Carpenter, Uptown with Rockers in a Stockpiled Nuclear Bunker', electronic delight.
By the time side one had finished, I'd taken down all our downstairs doors and fashioned a rudimentary Government approved bomb shelter (music can do strange things to you). What the excellent 'For Concrete and Country', won't make you do though, is put on tweeds and a bow tie and turn you into the kind of 'Dr Who Assistant', you wish could have had a giant radioactive maggot inserted where the Tardis don't shine.
