(1991, Rough Trade/EMI)

A weird quirk of us doing this in alphabetical order is the seeming early proliferation albums, with 33% of the list at this early stage of things belonging to a weird greebo indie band from the early 90’s. All three albums are absolutely fucking brilliant though, so who cares?

This is Carter’s second album, back when it seemed like they represented the future of indie and garnered (completely correct) 10/10 reviews from Steve Lamacq in the NME.
