Not too much of cultural value has emerged from the English town of Ipswich in the beautiful rural county of Suffolk, making old-school punks The Adicts something of an anomaly. Known for their Clockwork Orange image, Keith “Monkey” Warren’s merry droogs since 1975 have put out 10 strong studio albums (plus a string of EPs, live records and compilations), the most recent being 2017’s And It Was So! on the usually metal label Nuclear Blast. The clownish costumes sit eerily alongside the fact that The Adicts’ lyrics often deal with very real working-class issues, leading British journalist Garry Bushell to tag The Adicts (and bands like them) “punk pathetique.” The band’s popularity has barely waned, though, with young audiences flocking to see them to this day.
