CLAPHAM RIFFERS SHOW THEY’VE GOT THE HUMP FOR TRUMP ON NEW EP

■ SINCE PUP­PET Kings’ dawn­ing in 2012, the Clapham three-piece have gained them­selves some heavy mo­men­tum, hav­ing sup­ported the likes of Skindred, Black Peaks and HECK.YET they’re still dis­sat­is­fied. Fu­elled by frus­tra­tion, their new four-track EP gushes like an open jour­nal and throbs like an open wound. For in­stance, glazed in a metal­lic hard rock lac­quer, Rich N’ White dis­cusses po­lit­i­cal in­jus­tice. It be­gins with Don­ald Trump honk­ing on about his plan to build a wall, fol­lowed by front­man Tom Cochrane bit­terly in­ton­ing. ‘When I was young, I learned to share / But now I’ve grown up, I wouldn’t dare.’ And one in the eye for Trump is def­i­nitely worth your time. DOWN­LOAD: Rich N’ White. FOR FANS OF: Me­tal­lica, Foo Fight­ers.
