Archers Of Loaf

Archers of Loaf is an American indie rock band originally formed in Chapel Hill, North Carolina in 1991 by Eric Bachmann, Matt Gentling, Eric Johnson and Mark Price. The group toured extensively and released four studio albums, one compilation, numerous singles and EPs, and a live album which was released after the band broke up in 1998. In 2011 the band began a reunion tour that coincided with the reissue of four of its albums by Merge Records.

Links To Peel

Peel played tracks from the group between the early and mid 90's. He was impressed with their music and when the track 'Web In Front' reached number 23 in the Festive Fifty, he was delighted that it entered in the chart and how the 2 minute song was brief and to the point. The band did two sessions for Peel's show before splitting up in 1998.
