Working Men’s Club are three-piece who take the angular sound of Talking Heads, Gang of Four and Television and round off the corners with inspiration from Parquet Courts and The Strokes. Their band name was inspired by where they grew up and their attempts to get into pubs and working men’s clubs as that was the only entertainment around. The band met in Manchester but hail from Yorkshire via Poland and Italy.

Bad Blood is the new-ish single from Working Mens Club, a new-ish outfit hailing from the green and pleasant vale of West Yorkshire. There are obvious hallmarks of classic bands, such as the New Order-y drum machine sound and scuzzy CBGB guitars, but the song is still their own. 'Bad Blood' is a nice, seamless synthesis of indie and dance. I also really like a cover which is surely in tribute to Joe Meek's classic 1960 album 'I Hear A New World'; this reference piques my interest and I look forward to hearing something more substantial from WMC.
