Call me a taxi! (Alright… you’re a taxi)

inlovewithmambotaxiHere’s a full album for you, from riot grrrl quartet Mambo Taxi. The thanks list for this album (which takes up most of the inlay card) is a wonderful catalogue of great bands of the early-to-mid 90s…. Stereolab, Th’ Faith healers, Velocity Girl, John Spencer Blues Explosion, Pram, Cornershop, Senseless Things, Prolapse, Heavenly, Huggy Bear, Transglobal Underground… and bands I’d forgotten even existed, like Killdozer and Palace Brothers. And ones I’m only guessing from context were bands: Saffron’s Daughter, Frantic Spiders, Gorgeous Space Virus, Ascoyne d’Ascoynes, Punjab Rovers… heck, who needs the music when just the acknowlegements are such a rush of nostalgia?

But here’s the music anyway.
