Siltbreeze (1994)

This is the Strapping Fieldhands' 10" ep "In the Pineys." A real fine little slab from the first golden era of Siltbreeze, the label who put out The Greatest 7" Of All Time (that would be the Shadow Ring's "Tiny Creatures"), and who came back a few years ago and started putting out all kindsa great stuff again.

Strapping Fieldhands apparently said they wanted to steal Skiffle from the British, and I don't know much about that, but I know that their version of Lay Down (Candles in the Rain) is one of the most crazyawesomegood covers ever. Of a Melanie song! How'd they do that?

  1. Oh this posting delights me! At least once every so often I find myself humming In the Pineys or their version of Lay Down. I've always been on the look out for this 10". The label always (the CD is similar)reminds me of a pine-scented car freshner.
