Barcode: 600197100226
FOLLOWING UP THEIR FULL-LENGTH ALBUM, THE EARTH IS BLUE, FROM EARLIER THIS YEAR ON THEIR NEW LABEL 20/20/20, DAMON & NAOMI HAVE ASSEMBLED THE RARE, OFTEN-BOOTLEGGED, GALAXIE 500 JOHN PEEL SESSIONS. THE TWO SESSIONS, WHICH CAPTURED THE BAND AT THE HEIGHT OF THEIR ABILITIES, FEATURE A SELECTION OF THE BAND'S PERSONAL FAVORITE ORIGINALS ALONG WITH SOME UNEXPECTED COVER SONGS. KNOWN BY FANS FOR YEARS, THESE TRACKS ARE MADE GENERALLY, AND OFFICIALLY, AVAILABLE FOR THE FIRST TIME. THE MEMBERS OF GALAXIE 500 WERE NOT EXPECTING THE RECEPTION THEY RECEIVED WHEN THEY WENT OVERSEAS IN 1989. WHILE THEIR FAME IN THE U.S. WAS RISING, IT STILL REMAINED IN AN EARLY, NASCENT STAGE. ENGLAND, ON THE OTHER HAND, CAUGHT ON QUICKLY, AND THE BEWILDERED BAND PLAYED TO SOLD-OUT AUDIENCES UP AND DOWN MOTHER BRITIAN. OF COURSE, NOTHING WAS MORE OF AN HONOR THAN BEING ASKED BY MUSIC WEATHERVANE AND SCHOLAR JOHN PEEL TO RECORD A SESSION FOR HIS BBC ONE RADIO SHOW. THEIR FIRST SESSION, RECORDED SEPTEMBER 24TH, 1989, PRODUCED LIVE VERSIONS OF FOUR BAND FAVORITES, "FLOWERS," "BLUE THUNDER," "DECOMPOSING TREES," AND THEIR MODERN LOVERS COVER, "DON'T LET OUR YOUTH GO TO WASTE." A YEAR LATER, THEY WERE BACK OVER, PLAYING EVEN LARGER VENUES, AND DECIDED TO TRY OUT A FEW NEW THINGS IN THEIR SECOND SESSION. RECORDED OCTOBER 30TH, 1990, GALAXIE 500 DID "WHEN WILL YOU COME HOME," AS WELL AS COVERS OF BUFFY ST MARIE ("MOONSHOT"), YOUNG MARBLE GIANTS ("FINAL DAY"), AND A LEFT-FIELD VERSION OF THE SEX PISTOLS' "SUBMISSION." STUNNING ARTWORK BY NEW YORKER ILLUSTRATOR LARA TOMLIN.
