Yeah Yeah Noh - When I Am A Big Girl MLP
Here's another one of John Peel's faves from back in the day. Read what Trouserpress writes on Yeah Yeah Noh:
Like In Tape labelmates the Creepers, this Leicester quartet (later quintet) displays some Fall influence (albeit less harsh) and makes things easy for record buyers by combining several releases onto a single disc. When I Am a Big Girl reprises the first three EPs in their entirety and has such highlights as "Cottage Industry," "Prick Up Your Ears" and "Starling Pillowcase and Why" which, like the rest of the record's songs, are unpolished, raw pop gems with smartass lyrics. Cymbal-less drums and chunky bass lines form a foundation for modest guitar work and Derek Hammond's deadpan baritone. Great fun.
Tracks 1, 7 & 8: Cottage Industry 7"
Tracks 3, 4 & 6: Beware The Weakling Lines 7"
Tracks 2 & 5: Prick Up Your Ears 7"
Third track on the 'Prick Up Your Ears' 7" is a cover of 'Bias Binding' by Terry And Gerry, not included on the MLP.
