The online show comes just ahead of Record Store Day 2021 (June 12th), for which the band are releasing an exclusive vinyl, “BBC Sessions 1994-1999”, limited to 1000 copies on bright pink vinyl. This collection really highlights how they grew up in public, from Northern Irish underground garage band, through the years of the mad fame of the number 1 debut album, to the expansion of the line up and sound with the introduction of guitar legend Charlotte Hatherley. Some of these tracks are made available for the first time since they were broadcast 25 or so years ago, and include the voice of the late great John Peel introducing them for the PEEL Acres session in April 1999.
