If you’re a fan of Lawrence, make sure you tune in to Marc Riley’s BBC Radio 6 Music Show at 7pm (GMT) this evening to hear a live Go-Kart Mozart session ahead of the new album’s release next week!

People of the past were known to use that most notable phrase: ‘to blow your mind’ – I think it is time to scatter the dust off this old expression and to reinstate it because I can think of no better epithet to describe the effect these songs will have on the discerning listener other than to say they will positively ‘blow your mind’!!
It is rare to find an album on which you enjoy every song and play both sides about equally – Mozart’s Mini Mart is that album!
There are 17 tracks featuring songs such as When You’re Depressed – which states ever so matter of factly: ‘when you’re depressed – you’re depressed’! This song also has a video (see below)…
Also included is Relative Poverty: ‘I’m living on a tenner a day’ – Facing The Scorn Of Tomorrow’s Generation or how about? Knickers On The Line By 3 Chord Fraud.
On this record Lawrence adopts the persona of ‘the sardonic Lucifer,’ a devilish character who pin-pricks his way through a myriad of absurd scenarios while dragging a bin-bag of pomposity and injustice to the council tip of songdom!!!
All this is done with the usual Mozart tongue in cheek witticisms – it’s as if Orton met Coward on the way to the kitchen sink.
This really is the most commercial set of songs Lawrence has ever released and it is definitely, absolutely the top most pop album of the year. It can’t be topped and it won’t be stopped!
You will treasure this and play it often.
