Like Corporation Buses
Cardigans records - just like Corporation buses, none for ages and then two come along at once.
Until my recent trip to St Andrews I didn't have anything by The Cardigans. However, that soon changed with the purchase of 1995's Life for 50p and 1998's Grand Turismo for a couple of quid,
And rather good they are too.
Nothing highfalutin just good old fashioned three minute pop records courtesy of Peter, Bengt, Magnus, Lars-Olof and Nina
Life is full of jingly jangly tunes which I think would find favour with our good friend Brian I'm not sure if they have featured yet in his excellent top 100 songs of the 90's but if not I suspect it is only a matter of time.
There is a slight evolution in that Grand Turismo dips it's toe into the world of Electronica. Just it's toe mind as it is still a stonkin' pop record.
Here's a song from each record
The Cardigans - Daddy's Car
The Cardigans - Erase/Rewind
