Carter The Unstoppable Sex Machine - Let's Get Tattoos (CDS)

More Carter, I know. One of the few (maybe only?) bands I think I like more now than I did back in the '90s. There's something about the passion that Jim Bob puts into everything, as well as having some of the great choruses. And I'll tell you what, this single has an absolutely killer chorus, no doubt about it. You probably already know that.

The b-sides of this single are good too, the first one does that proper Carter thing of going 'quiet... quiet... quiet... BOOM! DRUM MACHINE!'. And if you don't like that, well, you shouldn't really be here, should you? Go home and take a long look at yourself, your motivation, and your record collection. Come back when you've grown your fringe long.

Second b-side is a cover of a track by These Animal Men, in true 1990s covering-each-other style. Third b-side is a cover of a David Essex track. Really. So limited is my knowledge of most music I don't think I know it, but I'm sure all of you do, and I hope you like it.

Another blog

No idea if anyone will be interested, but thought I'd let you know that I'm periodically going to put some recordings from 78rpm records on a blog called Shellacs of Freedom.
