Various, Work is a 4-letter word (Fortuna Pop) 7"

"Work is a 4-letter word" is a 4-band split e.p., the third release on Fortuna Pop and a three-quarters brilliant vinyl treat. Bad news first, I can't get into the "genius" singer/songwriter Mark Hibbert at all, but the other three bands all provide tip top entertainment. The Family Way have genealogical links to Mambo Taxi and Blood Sausage and do themselves justice in a juicy pop manner, Go-Kart 800 are noise-rockers from the school of garage punk moonlighting from their main project, Cee Bee Beaumont and John Sims are a revelation! Equal parts Stereolab and Prolapse (especially the current "Autocade" single) to the power 10, they provide a droney, mesmerising pop experience. Love it.
