The Blue Smarties, Teeth like sheep (Grape Star) CD

One afternoon in 1990 I was lying on the grass in a field near Leicester watching The Blue Smarties play a set of chirpy-yet-grim beatbox pop songs, occasionally bunging in one that sounded an awful lot like The Blue Aeroplanes or a Sinead O'Connor cover. Having forgotten about them in the intervening seven years and only being reminded via a long and complicated train of events, I now find myself clutching their only CD and reminiscing while it plays. The surprising thing is that, despite the look-back factor, it's really not that bad and the measly two quid they're asking for it is worth "Baby suction head" and "Cough boy blues" on their own.
