N.M.E. 27th August, 1988. Live review of The Sugarcubes from I Beam Club, San Francisco and One Step Beyond, Santa Carla.

Interesting to note the withering review of Carter. 12 months later as the Carter U.S.M. and with Sheriff Fatman they’d be making a big splash. Didn’t they mug Philip Schofield at some Smash Hits award do?
