Oliver: Unsane - Cracked Up (15 December 1991)
Peel's championing of Unsane and their debut album continued unabated through December, and rightly so. This may be the finest track of the lot. Starting out with the low sound of scrap metal squeals, the track quickly takes a leap into what might almost be termed metal mariachi territory. Such is the propulsive drive of the track that by the end, particularly with the rotor-blade ferocity of the guitar lines and Charlie Ondras's relentless drum patterns, it sounds as though Unsane are riding to hounds. And I have a fair idea just where they may have summoned those dogs from.
