Pop Will Eat Itself - Get The Girl! Kill The Baddies! Live 92 (CDS)

It took me years to realise that I really like PWEI. Not all of it, for sure. Some of it's shit. BUT, a lot isn't. This song is a cracker, which I used to have on 12" and have somehow managed to lose, which seems to have been an error. This live version also includes the shout "LET 'EM HAVE IT!", followed by a piano solo. Nice.

'Can U Dig It?' is also a great song. Also a single in its own right, I think? Namechecks everything that was great about 1992, just about. 'Urban Futuristic' I don't know, maybe an album track I haven't found/remembered. Good samples on this one, plus xylophone solo. 'Wise Up! Sucker!' was possibly also a single, in its studio form. Really good song, this. Great stuff - what a CD!
