I'll Show You Mine-NME 24/10/98

Review by Johnny Cigarettes

Coming sealed in a black leather pouch, like there's going to be some unspecified bestiality going on inside, this Ultrasound single could never quite live up to such controversial expectations. 'I'll Show You Mine' will do instead, though, a swollen, anthemic love song yearning for the kind of kinship 'Stay Young' hinted at. Is this the new voice of the disenfranchised youth of Britain? Well, it sounds intermittedly like a whining teenager who's just had his glasses stamped on, but in a way that's really quite affecting. He's unlikely ever to get anyone to strip naked with this, but it deserves at least a quick sympathy snog.
