RCA Arcadia CAROT 1 1986

The Imps really hit the big time. This is their finest moment, and one of the singles of the Eighties... so, pity it wasn't a hit. It got a lot of airplay, and was used by radio stations as a background theme (usually from the 12" extended remix). It has a hypnotic riff, and a pounding beat. It took Spin/Life On Earth, added a powerful melody, and gave RCA a chance to hit the charts hard. So what happened?!

The B-sides are a bit broody, but are well executed.

Get it (7" or 12" fact, get both!) if you can! What IS Caroline doing on the cover?!
