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.

Absolute class. Peel knew a good tune when he heard one, and if it weren't for him, I'd never have heard half the bands on this blog. Brilliant, thanks again.

Counts for me as well as for other visitors here. Peel opened my ears to alot of bands I otherwise would never have known.

Yep, I'm also indebted to Peel for him "turning me on" (as it were) to YYN. Took me a while to pick up on 'em, ut when I did there was no looking back, as they say. Ta for posting. IBx

I'm pretty certain "Bias Binding" is a YYN original covered by Terry and Gerry (not the other way around).

Yes you're right and I know. Maybe what I wrote isn't that clear.
