“Recording at Maida Vale for the Peel Session was literally the highlight of our career as a band.”
So says Alicia from San Francisco indie legends The Aislers Set, and who are we to argue? Precious Recordings of London is excited to release this 2001 session for the one and only John Peel by the Slumberland dream-poppers, who recorded four songs for the BBC – among them a celebrated cover of Joy Division’s ‘Walked In Line’ and the band’s own classic ‘Mission Bells’.
The latter was written specifically for the session by Linton, who also supplies a sleeve essay with memories of the day of recording – and then hunkering down in a Glasgow pub with members of Belle and Sebastian to listen to the first broadcast on a tinny transistor.
Ten-inch vinyl limited edition of 500 copies featuring previously unseen photos on the inner sleeves.
Songsheet: Mission Bells, Walked In Line, Long Division, The Walk.
