Miaow – When It All Comes Down

Championed in Smiths-era indiedom by the very paper she wrote for, former NME hack Cath Carroll’s Miaow built their cult upon just three EPs before disbanding. Though nothing eclipses this anthology’s title track?1987’s jangle-tastic Factory single with its blissful Tyrolean yodel and glam hand claps?its supplementary Peel sessions, demos and Carroll’s Steve Albini-assisted homage to Elvis’ “King Creole” are enough to validate much of that distant, nepotistic praise.
