Vintage Crop - The North

A million thanks to my friend Nick, who pushed this beauty my way. It's a cracking single. An uncompromising guitar riff pushes the song forward in the same way that all those Elastica singles did from back when I was stomping around in Indie discos in the mid-90s. It's brilliantly aggressive and is complemented further by some stellar vocals and lyrics ("My neck is sore from holding up my head" is a sublime line). There's a 'rework' which banishes the guitars, using an 80s style synth backing instead, but it doesn't match the raw power that the original version does. Track Link:
