a brilliantly playful, summery hit of outsider pop, 'carpet madness' is the debut album from latest fatcat signing, get back guinozzi!. full of colour and character, it comprises a unique blossoming of hybrid sources - infectiously poppy, quirky and breezy, with a strong french slant and a wide range of influences taking in the likes of talking heads, the feelies, the smiths, early b-52's, king sunny ad, lee perry, rip rig and panic, ariel pink, the slits, the cure, animal collective, jonathan richman, and serge gainsbourg. infused with the exoticism of reggae, dub, african music, tropicalia, and cambodian music from the '60s, the breadth of sources it draws on, allied to its singer's skewed narratives and heavily-inflected english, give the project a distinctive individuality.
