The The – Giant

The closing track from 1983’s ‘Soul Mining’ is, like much of the album, a brand of 80’s Electro-Pop that never made it mainstream. Instead, Matt Johnson, and this album in particular, gained a rabid following. By far the longest track on the album, at 9 minutes plus, it’s practically an epic compared to the rest, and builds into a huge piece carried by chants from Matt Johnson, Paul Hardiman, and drummer Zeke Manyika. Jim Thirlwell also makes a guest appearance, playing the kitchen sink no less.
