Irvine Welsh, the band’s official biographer and Trainspotting author, said: “I’m delighted to report that Black Grape are back on the road, and with new album Pop Voodoo that really does rock the f**k out of the discotheque.
“Shaun’s word play has never been deployed to such devastating effect, and he scores a bullseye whether he hits the obvious targets (Trump), and the more obscure ones…well, find out for yourself. The world is in a bit of a state right now, and b******t reigns more than ever, and perversely disguised as candour. We need Manc street sass, intelligence and wit more than ever right now. This album has that in spades.”
