Triffids - Peel session 2

The triffids visited John Peel three times in their career. The first Peel session resulted in the fantastic Field of Glass EP. The 2nd peel session, which you can find here, contains three tracks also to be found on Born Sandy Devotional. The cover above is of the CD-issue. The vinyl cover is different.
The 3rd peel session was never officially issued and I don't have a copy of that performance.

Tracks are : Life of crime, Chicken killer and Lonely stretch. Enjoy !

Glenn Mercer - Sunday Morning

One small sidestep. Glenn Mercer, formerly of The Feelies, has issued a new CD this year, called wheels in motion. Buy it !Very recommended. Here, you can get the download only bonus track : Sunday morning, of course a cover.

Triffids : as featured in NEIGHBOURS !

In 1989, Bury me deep in love got a second chance of becoming a hit, as it was played in the soap series Neighbours. The CD single (my copy has got a sticker on it with the message "as featured in neighbours") has different B-sides than the original issue : Rent (Pet Shop boys cover) and Into the groove (Madonna cover). These B-sides are not included on the otherwise splendid Calenture 2CD re-issue. Here you find the complete CD-single.
