From Maida Vale 4
A few weeks back CC over here posted a video from Peel faves, Twa Toots, which got me to thinking about their wonderful 1983 Peel Session. Quite posssibly the only band from The Isle Of Sheppey to record a Peel Session, they don't appear to have done much else part from the session. I'm only aware of a limited edition album that came out in 1986 that only had one pressing of 250 and then a single a few years later called Don't Send Me Flowers. Pity as the Peel Session was one of the best of 1983, consisting of A New Depression, Yo-Yo, It's A Lovely Day and the standout track, Please Don't Play 'A Rainy Night In Georgia'. Listening to it today I would love to have heard Tracey Ullman cover this, it sounds right up her street...
