Should The Bible Be Banned?

Described by Nicky Wire as 'communism with tunes' McCarthy were Stereolab man Tim Gane's first band, releasing three albums and numerous singles in the mid-to-late 80s. This one, Should the Bible Be Banned?, is one of their best- shimmering guitars and a satirical lyric asking if the murder of Abel by Cane would inspire copycat killings, at a time when the tabloid press asked the same question but about TV and film rather than the bible. There's a nice compilation album That's All Very Well But... which is worth getting if you can find it (or you can download it from emusic).
