AllMusic Review by

Car Song is a little import five-songer from this post-punk/new wave band. The sex-crazed, amusing A-side is on Elastica, but the B-sides include a live track (from Tokyo, July 11, 1995), a demo, and two previously unreleased songs. "Car Song" and "Gloria" (B-side of "Waking Up") sound rougher, hotter, and dirtier live (the live "Jam II" is a throwaway), while "Bar Bar Bar" scorches raw, hard and simple, throbbing like an old Naked Raygun gem. Good looks aside (that helps!), their attitude makes you think it would be a whop load of unpretentious fun.
