Music video by The Boomtown Rats performing Like Clockwork. (C) 1978 PolyGram Video
"Like Clockwork" is a single by The Boomtown Rats. It was the band's first to break the top ten in the British charts reaching number 6. Described as simple, cool, in concerts supporting A Tonic for the Troops the song's agitated, staccato bassline made it a common show opener. The B-side, "How do you do?" was a typical fast-paced punk/new-wave song in the mould of the band's earlier work. However, the Irish version of the single, released on Mulligan Records, substituted the B-side "D.U.N L.A.O.G.H.A.I.R.E", a tongue in cheek samba discussing the spelling of the band's home town, Dún Laoghaire. The latter was later released in the UK as a free Flexidisc distributed by Flexipop Magazine in January 1981.
