Croydon DIY punks WONK UNIT have just dropped a video for their new single.
'Cyclists' was inspired when the band were delayed by a pair of pedallers en route to a festival. Frontman Alex takes up the story...
“Did they care about the motorcade snaking behind them? Cause not! [sic] Go read the highway code - two abreast is cool but ONLY IN CERTAIN SITUATIONS. DO NOT OBSTRUCT THE FLOW OF TRAFFIC. It’s the rules. So, I was tapping my hands on the dashboard when the funk took hold. "Cyclists riding 2 abreast blocking traffic, blocking traffic". Then I did some rapping (but thankfully that never made it onto the single.) After about three months the cyclists decided to fix a puncture and we made it to the festival. By then the song was already a Wonk winner in the van! We jammed it in soundcheck and was a hit in our set later that night. The end.”
'Cyclists' is available to download here.
