2007 CD project: 4/52

The fourth CD I bought this year was Elastica's eponymous debut.

"Eponymous Debut" would be a good name for a band.

Anyway, Elastica's 1995 album cost me a scant $7.53, which I pretty near the maximum which I would have paid for it. Not that it's a poor album, just rather common in the used bins.

There's a mine of good, driving Brit-pop here: the massive hit "Connection," "2:1," "Waking Up," and my personal favorite, the cutely risqué "Car Song." (I always found Justine Frischmann rather alluring. "Every shining bonnet makes me think of my back on it.")

And that's about all I can manage to say about Elastica. Well, not every post can be a fountain of eloquence.
