Oliver: Jacob's Mouse - Caphony (8 February 1992)
It's back to the most famous chip shop in Bury St Edmunds for a track that opens up like The Walk, The Shuffle, The Crab or any other of those guitar instrumentals that invite dancers to barrel up to the floor like demented earwigs given over to dances which provoke constant movement rather than aesthetic form. The poorly mixed vocals keep the intentions of this track unknown, though an anti-fascist lyric peaks through alongside the prominent "Snow white, blood red" chorus.
The rest of this post I'm going to leave to Jacob's Mouse themselves. After all they are the official representatives of all of the J releases in Peel's record collection.
