First wax from this band. Carpettes put out a handfull of great 7-inches and 2 great LPs. Their best record thou, must be the 2nd 7″ which is posted on this blog earlier somewhere: Small wonder. Later the music became more punk-new wave very well-played with clean production, but still very good. Like many other punkbands they also had a couple of reggae-songs and if thereÂ´s something I dislike as much as hardcorebands turning into metal in the mid 80Â´s, it must be the punkbands trying to play reggae circa 1980!
My favourites here are Radio Wunderbar and the pretty fast song called Help IÂ´m trapped.
Label: Small wonder
How about me and you.mp3
Thanks a lot. I just love this. I don’t know why I didn’t buy this record when I bought other Small Wonder records like The Cravats. Different band again, but do you have anything by Fatal Microbes?
after hearing the 1st carpettes single, this one just makes me sad..
three words: awesome
“Help, I’m Trapped” is incredible
Thanks, this is great stuff!
A very much overlooked band and this is a GREAT record.The follow up”Small Wonder/2NE1 is their best but this is certainly no slouch either.”Radio Wunderbar”is my pick of the four tracks on this gem
this is a much overlooked record, some great guitar work, especially on “how about me and you”
I bought this in Quicksliver Records in Reading (UK) purely on the basis of the cover and loved it, which I still do all these many, many years later…
