Links To Peel

Peel described the band's one session as "excellent... wonderful... one of the best received of the year" when it was repeated on 10 December 1998. The track 'Aquarius' was a big favourite with the DJ, being selected as a Peelenium choice for 1998. The original single was later found in John Peel's Record Box.


One session. "Aquarius" and "Olson" available on the band's 'Peel Sessions' three-track EP. Note: the version of "Happy Cycling" on the EP is not the broadcast version. "XYZ" features a sample from a track by Tangerine Dream founder Edgar Froese, which may explain why the track has never been officially released.[1] Also available on Various Artists: WXAXRXP 10x12” box set, digital, 2019 (Warp WARPLP300).
