The Peel Session
02. Awake On A Train
03. Now There Is That Fear Again
04. The Ballard Of The Broken String
Recorded at Maida Vale Studios in 2002 for BBC Radio One's infamous, revered, and fondly remembered John Peel show. The four tracks here (five if you include the amalgamation of the two songs on the opening track) are significantly different versions of songs that will be familiar to fans, yet fresh enough to warrant a widespread release of what amounts to a batch of stand-alone recordings by a young band at a creative peak. Before their line-up changed, before others tried to copy their sound, before anyone from America ever went to the Airwaves Festival, this is a document of a time we hold dear to our hearts.
