Best of McCarthy due soon

That's All Very Well, But ... is released on 5th October.

Press release:

Probably remembered more for their left-wing politics than their jangly sound, McCarthy formed in Barking in 1985, and featured the irrefutable talent of Malcolm Eden, Tim Gane and Laetitia Sadier (the latter two later went on to great success with Stereolab).

Influenced by British punk groups such as The Sex Pistols, The Clash, and The Buzzcocks, in turn McCarthy have been cited by many bands as an early influence, including The Manic Street Preachers who recently covered the classic “We Are All Bourgeois Now”.

“That’s All Very Well But… The Best Of” features the highlights of McCarthy’s career as well as unreleased material and obscure BBC radio sessions.

Tracklist: Red Sleeping Beauty/ Should The Bible Be Banned / An MP Speaks / The Fall / The Funeral / We Are All Bourgeois Now / Antinature / Kill Kill Kill Kill / Frans Hals / The Myth Of The North/South Divide / This Nelson Rockefeller / Charles Windsor / From The Damned/ Child Soon In Chains / The Enemy Is At Home [For The Fat Lady] / The Well Of Loneliness / You're Alive / Keep An Open Mind Or Else / I'm Not A Patriot But / Comrade Era / Should The Bible Be Banned
