  The Lovers - Y*E*A*H 3*1*4*5 - 7” (Hingley 4)
By Blackpool Rox II (Editor) Issue 9 (2004) submitted

This 7” was courtesy of a post gig trade with Tom Hingley (ex-singer of Manchester’s Inspiral Carpets) up at the West Coast. Didn’t quite know what to expect after having listened to his hour long his acoustic solo set and the historical exposure to a few years of the ‘Inspirals’ – back in the day. I played the 3145 track first which put me in mind of Grant Hart’s 7541 strangely enough – tenuous numerical link I know, but it is similar I promise you. The other side is far better though – Tom is certainly having a political moment here. The gist of the lyrics (I think) are about rationalizing the ‘perceived’ dysfunctions of others to build up your own self – worth which is articulated through a broadside sweep against celebrities and reality TV. All filed under “legitimate targets” in our little punk rock lexicon. The music is sort of a more high end Inspirals with dissonant angsty vocals – I enjoyed … oh and it’s on yellow vinyl too mmmmmm.
