“Small Wonder Small Wonder bonka bonk bonk. Small Wonder bonka bonk bonk”. Wonderful tom tom sound and one hell of a catchy punk rock song. One of the best Carpettes releases along with the “I Don’t Mean It” 7inch. The Carpettes are one of those bands that made some really really bad tracks and then all of a sudden some killer songs poped out. Like their first LP for example.
“As a band, The Carpettes were hamstrung by not having an image, or a scene into which they might fit.They were really firing on all cylinders when they were expected to fit into the birth of indie scenes everywhere, and it wasn’t easy for them. The songs can’t be faulted . . .” They’re still around so check them out: The Carpettes.
