Lawrence Hayward, former leader of Felt and Denim, is one of underground pop's true eccentrics.

On the Hot Dog Streets, his third album under the Go-Kart Mozart alias, doesn't deviate from his novelty rock/bubble-pop vision (albeit while able to draw upon everything from dubstep to New Order), nor from his enduring obsessions: RAK records, 1970s kids' TV and, particularly, the degeneration of the English working class – all delivered in that deadpan Brummie tone.
