Unpaid Intern feed each other 20p Space Raiders and Frazzles in the video for ‘World Cup of Crisps’

The only band in Manchester celebrating the humble Chipstick right now

Unpaid Intern’s new video harks back to simpler times. When going into the corner shop for some crisps meant £1 could probably bag you some 20p Space Raiders, Chipsticks, Onion Rings, maybe even stretch to some Frazzles. Good, honest, unfussy classic crisps. None of your Thai sweet chilli kettle crisps nonsense.

Anyway, the Manchester foursome are celebrating those humble snacks with the clip they’ve made for ‘World Cup of Crisps’. The track is taken from the EP, ‘Unrivalled Work Ethic’, which they released at the end of 2016 on a limited edition cassette via Havana Tapes. You can also still listen to it here.

Unpaid Intern are playing some shows, too:

The Stag’s Head, Hackney, London – 7 April
Coachwerks, Brighton – 8 April
White Hotel (with Fruit Tones), Manchester – 15 April
