SUPER ADVENTURE CLUB: ‘Straight From The Dick.’


SUPER ADVENTURE CLUB - Straight From The DickBlimey! Can it really be three years since Glasgow’s SUPER ADVENTURE CLUB released their second album, ‘Avoid Zombies‘ ? About time for their third then, right?

Well, here’s the good news: the third album IS set for release (2nd December 2013 on Armellodie Records.) But here’ the bad news: it’s to be the band’s last recording, having played their final show  back in August.

But here’s more good news – ‘Straight from The Dick‘ is a glorious way to say ‘goodbye.’

‘Straight From The Dick’ sees the triumvirate – Bruce Wallace, Mandy Clarke and Neil Warrack – maintain their zen-like focus on memorable hooks and surrealist lyrical imagery. From loungey hip-swinging tales of culture shock (‘Hablo Espanol’), freakish ear-drum workouts (‘Fuck The Pop’, ‘9 Times’), Zappa-esque spaz-jazz (‘Dog With Two Dicks)’, and giddy brain-melting wrong-pop (‘Turns Out My Brain Was My Other Brain’), the band parley with idiosyncratic pop, and parade their ninja-jazz-rock mojo with glee.

On album centre-piece, ‘Between a Sock and a Hard Place’, Wallace sings about people who have fallen in love with things that are not human. Selvi Kumar dedicated his life to a dog after killing another dog. Lee Jin married a pillow of an anime character. Eija-Riitta Berliner-Mauer, 54, whose surname means Berlin Wall in German, wed the concrete structure in 1979 after being diagnosed with a condition called Objectum Sexuality. This song is a perfect example of not only the band’s contagious and slightly deranged sense of humour, but also their enviable ability to pen a tune.

And here’s all the proof you need:
