S.o.t.D. - Double Cross – Skinny Puppy

Double Cross – Skinny Puppy

I met a gal in 90 that I ended up having a relationship with, who I was to find out was friends with Mr. Crompton. She had gone to Papua New Guinea in 86 on a zoological expedition and he had given her a tape to listen to that he had called “Day in the Jungle/Night in the Jungle” that she made me a copy of. Very thrilled to get to listen to it. It contained some Legendary Pink Dots stuff, some Nocturnal Emissions, and some demo and instrumental versions of Skinny Puppy songs. And this track, which wasn’t to see the light of day until the release of Brap: Back & Forth 3&4. 

Still remains one of the most evocative pieces of music I have ever heard. It showcased some of the more ambient stuff they were doing, with as always lots going on in it when you listened to it on headphones. Like most of their stuff, it warranted very close listening to discover all buried in tracks.
