Music Monday ~ 37: Cracker – Low

I can remember the first time I heard this song. It was in May 1994 and we were driving to Wits University to do some late night revising for our exams.  I was blown away and this song immediately became one of my biggest obsessions of all time.

This was before the days of the World Wide Web of course and I had three choices: I could buy the full Cracker CD Kerosene Hat (but I really only liked the one song), I could pay a ridiculously high amount of money for an import CD single or I could buy a compilation CD with it on.  In the end, I waited until my next trip to London and bought the CD single. 

I was surprised to learn that David Lovering from Pixies was drummer for the band around the time this single was released.  I wonder if he played on it??  I was even more surprised to see that Cracker have released 10 studio albums and have a loyal fan base as I thought they were a one hit wonder!
