1997 was a big year for The Olivia Tremor Control. They were
riding high on the release of their debut double album “Dusk At
Cubist Castle,” and touring the world relentlessly. During a visit
to the UK in March, illustrious tastemaker DJ John Peel requested
the band to visit his studios to record for his radio show. Seventeen
years later, “John Peel Session” is released.
“John Peel Session” features a couple never-before-released
songs amidst the three tracks. A radio session that has been
officially licensed from the BBC, this is continued evidence of a
band that is in further need of celebration.
