The Lies/When Emily Cries - See Emily Play 7" (2000, Cosmic Debris)

Theme split single, the rather obvious motif being a five letter moniker starting with "E," and ending in "y."  I'm a sucker for Pink Floyd covers, and next to "Arnold Layne," "See Emily Play" is my favorite morsel from the Syd Barrett era.  The Lies twist on it isn't particularly revelatory, but faithful almost to a fault, sans the Brit accents, not to mention half as thrilling as the original.  The flip side's unknown quantity Knit Separates interpret a song by the Television Personalities that I'm entirely foreign to, a strummy melancholic ballad titled "When Emily Cries," which goes down easy by way of it's vicarious 1960's vibe.
