Skeleton Crew – The Hand That Bites

Another track from the band’s 1986 album ‘The Country Of Blinds’ that perfectly displays the mix of virtuosity and the raw, almost slapdash, approach that they took when it came to their music. They split after this, their second album, due to the fact that they felt it was starting to become too polished. This has a lovely push and pull due to the tension provided by the aforementioned polarities, right up until the beautiful and sublime moment at 3:29, where the piece becomes something far more expansive.
