The single the very band loves to hate to the present day. While it may seem the most untypical of the Cocteau Twins' releases - mainly due to the fact the production duties were handed over to Alan Rankine of The Associates (who, in his own right, did a splendid job here) - it is by all means a true, furious, rock solid offering.

Of the two officially known versions of the title song, the 12" version fares way better due to a longer intro, aided with the amazingly intense "Laugh Lines" and "Hazel" (the latter featured also in the group's earlier 1983 Peel Session, that version backed by the amazing Gordon Sharp).

I've the same experience. I used to have the British version with 'Laugh Lines' on the B-side, but this isn't 'Laugh Lines', although its credited on the label and the cover. It's definately another version of 'Peppermint Pig'.

Don't know if this is a one-off or that they're all the same, but my copy of this specific 7" doesn't have Laug Lines on the B-side, but another version of Peppermint Pig. I've clocked it at about 4:40 min., which makes it roughly the same length as the 12" version of Peppermint Pig (I didn't use a digital clock, just my wrist watch to time them). Also, the composition of the two versions is similar, so I guess it IS the 12" version on the B-side of this single.
Anyone with the same experience, so we can correct this?
