POPNOSE MP3 OF THE WEEK
4. Smiley Culture – “Nuclear Weapon”

Smiley Culture’s mix of sunshine tunes and fast, funny toasting hit big in ’84 or so with the fantastic “Police Officer”. His Hold Your Tongue album from 1986 is eight more tracks of the same (plus a crap “Police Officer” remix). It was a hard choice picking between this and “Westland Helicopter”, where Smiley imitates Mrs.Thatcher, but my enduring fascination with cold war tunes won the day. Straightforward pop-reggae and better heard than described, this sounds very much of its time but a lot of fun.
