The Wednesday Play debut 7" single Flickers - [45 rpm (Colour: Clear) Lathe Cut] - backed with Waiting at Home. Recorded and produced by multi-instrumentalist Sam Soper with lyrics and vocals by Robert Paul.

Flickers - is a blistering post-punk track featuring a wild saxophone solo by Chuchi Malpersona (Jim Jones All Stars). Sharp, catchy and tightly played, musical comparisons include The Fall, The Buzzcocks and Blur. Lyrically the song references out of date technology (such as DVD players etc.) as metaphors for feelings of disorientation and disconnection.

Waiting at Home - is an upbeat post-punk/dance track inspired by early 80s hip-hop/new wave crossovers. American vocalist Tina Swasey adds to the Tom Tom Club or Rapture-era Debbie Harry vibe, but the spiky guitar is pure Gang Of Four. In contrast to the energetic music, the lyrics address feelings of paranoia and insomnia whilst waiting for a late night telephone call. The track makes use of various vintage drum machines and Sam Soper’s hand built synth.

Please note: Each record is individually cut on a lathe meaning sound quality varies from record to record.

Band members: Sam Soper (all instruments), Robert Paul (vocals) Guest musicians: Tina Swasey (Vocals on ‘Waiting at Home), Chuchi Malpersona (Saxophone on ‘Flickers’) Producer: Sam Soper
