Cheshire Cat

I listened to the debut album by Blink 182 today, Cheshire Cat. Less puerile than the albums that followed and not chock full of hits. Enough for me though.
Notable tracks are M+M’s and Carousel, but there is a little more to it than just those songs, you delve into it and it does reward. Although there isn’t a single track on it I don’t love, just because of the quality spread across their subsequent albums, it is my least favourite of theirs and as such the least played, but Blink 182 on a bad day is better than most on great days.
This album features Scott Raynor on drums, their little know first drummer, replaced by Travis Barker some time later and also initially they were called Blink but some dodgy British indie band made them change their name, such is the power wielded by dodgy British indie bands, unless you are called Suede, The Beat or The Charlatans. All of which is inconsequential when it comes to the debut by Blink 182.8 out of 10.
