After six years in operation, Earworm Records finally closed for business in the summer of 2002. 'A Charabang Trip To The Lights' represents Worm83, or rather the final CD to be issued by this excellent label; it is a selection of eighteen songs originally intended to be released as singles. Salvatore - actually from Norway - kicks proceedings off with some metronomic grooves. The most famous name here, The Cranebuilders, compare to a more languid House Of Love, yet the rambling 'Against Your Wishes' edges closer towards Belle And Sebastian territory. House Of Mexico deftly conjure of images of the next Jesus And Mary Chain with the pastiche 'Down It Brings Me'. The Shimmer Kids Underpop Association travel further back in time recalling both a low-budget Spector ('Miss Classified') and The Beach Boys ('Sundowner'). The rather humdrum work of The Interferons is surpassed by one track from Landshipping; a heavily echoing rock track that has more than a whiff of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club about it. With most bands producing low budget (but impressive) takes of more famous bands, this is a fitting epitaph to a fine label.
