(1990, Big Cat)⁠

Probably the oldest album on the list (released Jan 15th, 1990) this debut by dog-on-a-string-indie-pop-anarchists Carter USM is a burst of colour and vibrancy melded to caustic excoriations of Thatcher’s government and the bloated greed merchants who sailed with her.⁠

WATCH: The music video for Sheriff Fatman, surely the best pop single ever written about slum landlords:

Fatman’s got something to sell

To the capitol’s homeless

At the Crossroads Hotel

For the no-fixed-abodeless.
