Comments
  • Peel describes the Boards Of Canada session as "excellent ... wonderful ... one of the best received of the year." He wishes he'd asked why the band have their name, even though it's such a boring question: "Why are you called The Beatles?" Wonders whether the name might be an anagram, as it sounds like a crossword clue. [1] Original single of session track Aquarius turned up in John Peel's Record Box.
  • Complains about the terrible smell of next studio ("it smells of corruption and rotting flesh and terrible feet and things like that..."), then realises it seems to have followed him in.
  • Thrill to a Tom Jones cover by "Swedish Elvis" Eilert Pilarm. Peel promises more from the LP the following week - "you can be absolutely certain of that!"

Sessions

  • Boards Of Canada #1 Repeat of only session, first broadcast 21 July 1998. "Aquarius" and "Olson" available on Peel Session (Warp Records WAP114, 1999). Note: the version of "Happy Cycling" on the EP is not the broadcast version.
