So what do you do when you’ve had a run of BBC sessions and fancy trying something different? How about a session of cover versions, with each member of the band choosing a song? The Soup Dragons were changing before our ears – one listen to their version of Purple Haze tells you that. Also features a six-second arthouse prank that reportedly did not entirely amuse John Peel.
There are four Soup Dragons BBC sessions altogether available now from The K Mail Order Dept., two for John Peel two for Janice Long.
