"... one of the most entertaining, witty listens out there, a smart mix of indie rock, alt-country, and power pop."

Russian Racehorse (1997)

Jim Walsh, St. Paul Pioneer Press & Dispatch
In addition to producing one of the most entertaining local 'zines around in "The Catch O' the Day the wryly romantic men of Carp 18 have uncorked a solid debut disc that rocks as hard as it bobs, and twangs as sweetly as it croons.

Stacia Proefrock, All Music Guide
Russian Racehorse shows that a group of northern boys with guitars can rock out in many ways. Some of the more clever sounds have echoes of irony-infused bands like the Modern Lovers, while the countryfied aggressive style of the band as a whole can make them sound like a backing band for Steve Earle.

More Disrespectful Car Songs

Yes, it's true, Carp 18 received airplay across the nation on NPR's fine show Car Talk. The song, Muscle Car Blues (Tell Me Another) is track #14 on this "fun-to-listen-to" record.
