SUSPICIONS, THE: We: 7″ 45

Sounds like a tinny, mildly incompetent version of Nikki & The Corvettes tracks not about overt kitsch, or maybe like if the Spastics’ first 45 was an attempt at sounding like the songs off of Modern Kicks. Worth owning but not worth busting a nut looking for. BEST SONG: “We’re All Wrong” BEST BOARD GAME: “Memory,” but only the version where some are the tiles are from House Of Cards by Eames. FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACTS: 1. 45 sleeve does not directly bear the band’s name—a round orange sticker reading “THE SUSPICIONS” is affixed to the otherwise wordless front cover; 2. The font used is CA KissKissBangBang, the same font i used for the Razorcake cover i did a while ago.
