This is very, very 90s. Very 90s indie, anyway. Well, very 90s indie baggy at least: a proper indie guitar sound, a solo that goes nowhere, a baggy rhythm section, and that’s Steve Coogan’s brother on vocals, no less. The Mock Turtles deserved better than to wind up in a “One Hit Wonders” section on VH1, but their next single, And Then She Smiles didn’t quite break into the top 40, and they never recovered from that.
Apparently Can You Dig It? was recently used in an ad campaign by Gala Bingo. Is nothing sacred any more?
