The latest in Clash's Video Postcard series...

With his ‘Fonz’ single our pick of this week’s new releases – click HERE four our weekly singles round up – the time’s never been better to get cosy with Eugene McGuinness for one of our special video postcards.

We caught up with Eugene at the Social in the centre of London (indeed, the venue is but a skip and a jump from Clash’s capital city HQ in Soho – please bring us biscuits). He plays ‘Fonz’ first – as you would – followed by ‘Dear English Reserve’; the former is from Eugene’s debut solo album, a self-titled affair out now on Domino. Read our review of it HERE.
