EXCLUSIVE: The 3 Clubmen premiere video for single ‘Aviatrix’ ahead of debut EP release

The 3 Clubmen have unveiled the video for their single ‘Aviatrix.’ It’s taken from their self-titled debut EP which will be released on 30th June, via Swindon-based Lighterthief label in conjunction with Burning Shed.

The band are a new project comprised of XTC’s Andy Partridge together with Jen Olive and Stu Rowe. While each artist has worked with the others in some form since 2008, this is the first time they have come together as as a trio; a partnership once described as ‘a three-headed Frankenstein’s monster dancing at a neurodivergent singles club‘.

Speaking about the group, Partridge says: ‘Like an ‘action painter’ throws colour at a canvas, we tend to throw musical and sound things, knowing that we’ll cut through this seemingly insane mess later, to hopefully find some beautiful garden, hiding there.’ He adds: ‘I throw paint, Jen throws paint, Stu throws paint…and we walk away. If, when we return, something in there calls to us, we’ll move heaven and earth to get it out and let it breath. Using whatever it takes, be it contrary musical ideas, parts in clashing keys incongruous sounds, contradictory words/phrases. Its all clay to us.’

The video may be seen below:

The EP tracklisting is as follows:

1. Aviatrix
2. Racecar  
3. Green Green Grasshopper
4. Look At Those Stars
