The Bluebells [Sire EP, 1983]
Leading up to a stirring chorus and going out on a rousing coda (more stirring and rousing on the London import 12-inch, I must report), "Cath" is one of those pop strokes that'll show up on anthologies with "Turning Japanese" and "Starry Eyes" in 2001. Dominic Behan's "Patriots Game" shoulda been a Dylan song. "Everybody's Somebody's Fool" ain't bad. B
