When a band recorded a John Peel session it was always an exciting moment for a fan as you got to hear either new material or a different take of previously released track.
The sessions were often as close to hearing the band live as you could get as there was no studio trickery. Like most listeners if there was a band I loved in session I’d record the show and listen over and over again.
This week’s show celebrates those John Peel sessions and is a compilation of some of the best shoegaze moments recorded between 1984 and 1991.
