Kid Carpet : £1,500 And A Bus Apology
The Fisher-Price future of dance
More Big Bear than Big Beat, we can only take the wildest of stabs at the ‘instruments’ used to forge this inner city Magic Roundabout masterpiece of lolloping Lemon Jelly boinginess.

Um, that you can dance to. That it includes a rapping auctioneer, more West Country yokels than you could terrify with an electric torch and ends with Stephen Hawking apologising for the late arrival of the 18.18 bus from Taunton is further proof of a mind so wonderfully warped it probably thinks Arsenal deserved to win the FA Cup. It wobbles, certainly, but it doesn’t fall down.
