CARTER U.S.M / 30 Something (1991)

Jim Bob and Fruitbat did it again with this second album, only they did it even better.  This is the best Carter album by far.  In fact, it's one of the best early 90's pop punk albums, period.  Recorded in 20 days on an old 8-track it's still just a programmed drum machine and sequenced backing tracks, with the two guys on guitar but when it's this good, who cares!  They played almost all of this the first time I saw them live and I loved it like Elvis loved a burger.

Songs of Note: Surfin' USM; Billy's Smart Circus
