Wonk Unit, the unique punk quartet born out of the South London town of Croydon, return with a new single Cyclists, that furthers the bands inimitable take on punk rock, and finds them this time taking aim at selfish cyclists.
“Last Summer on route to a festival on some country lane we were unfortunate enough to get stuck behind two cyclists, yes two abreast,” explains frontman Alex Johnson. “Did they care about the motorcade snaking behind them? Course not! 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”. 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.”
The end result is just over two-minutes of additive wonk genius that once ingested, is almost impossible to get out of your system.
In short, you’ll be humming this for weeks.
