Album Notes
Finally, a damnable 12 years later, here it is... and it's even better!!!! Unlike Tricycle, you won't need a while to discern the full depth of their interplay and extrapolations on simple chords (something they inherited from The Feelies, via Velvet Underground), as this recording is popping at the seams (kudos producer James Mastro, guitarist of recently reunited Bongos).

Jack Rabid - The Big Takeover Issue #59 - see full review in Jack's top 40.

Wild Carnation was founded by Richard Barnes (Electric and acoustic guitars), Christopher O'Donovan (Drums, percussion, backing vocals) and Brenda Sauter (The feelies, Speed the Plough, The Trypes) on bass and vocals. Richard and Christopher went on to join Speed the Plough for the "Mason's Box" and "Marina" cd's released by East Side Digital, Minneapolis. Mn. Anne Hopkins (Mini-Compact Farfisa Organ) joined Wild Carnation in 1999.

subtltey that varies and moves
These musicians are really talking to each other, building with a kind of subtlty that varies and moves. Interesting new ideas resonate from one another. The music is very tight and constructed with depth. I have listened to this album many times and always find new things. Stay with it, there is much more to be done down the road, I can't wait.

Super Bus is a triumph!
Super Bus is a triumph! A great mix of catchy pop and psychedelic gems. The guitars of Rich Barnes grab the ear and never let go. The moving bass lines of Brenda Sauter over the steady beat of Chris O’donovan make for a powerful and dynamic duo of a rhythm section. The addition of Anne Hopkins on Farfisa organ really ties it all together yet separates it from Wild Carnation’s wonderful previous release Tricycle. The songs are infectious with great hooks and melodies, and the soulful vocals of Brenda Sauter steer the way.

Wild carnation in a super bus
Wer schon die CD Tricycle (1994) von Wild Carnation kennt und schätzt, wird positiv überrascht sein.
Während bei vielen Bands die Reunion-Versuche kläglich scheitern, weil man sich dem Trend der heutigen Musik anzupassen versucht, klingt Superbus so, als wäre Wild Carnation nie von der Bildfläche verschwunden gewesen.
Locker und präzise spielen Brenda, Anne, Rich und Chris bezaubernde Melodien, die nie langweilig werden und auch
Speed the plough Fans kommen voll auf ihre Kosten. Man lauscht einer enthusiastisch aufspielenden Band, die ich jedem wärmstens empfehlen kann.
Es bleibt zu hoffen, dass Wild Carnation noch viele CD`s und vielleicht auch mal eine DVD herausbringt!!!
