Cotton Crown/ PCH - Live in London 1987 Digital Download (SYR38)
Originally released as a 7" in 1993, these tracks were recorded live at London's Town & Country back in 1987.
'Cotton Crown' stars off with a sprightly old orchestral recording being played back, only for a few shards of discordant guitar to crowd into the mix, making way for a great slice of plodding SY pop-sludge that erupts into a superior noise workout about two-thirds of the way in.
'PCH' is markedly more abrasive from the outset, full of nerve-jangling chords and a howling Kim G vocal line. At one point the track stabilizes into a sweet slow jam, making like a noise-rock 'Freebird'."
