Men at Work: Cargo (Columbia)

Richard Riegel, Creem, August 1983

SURE, I LIKE Men At Work too. Doesn't everybody? They seem able to please all the people all the time, even though that's not their grand pop-scheme design, as far as I can tell. Instead, the right group of guys with the right background (namely Australia, that halfcaste child of England and America) happened to come together at the right time to appeal to millions (through their own natural selves).
