Pop Off Tuesday - Peel Sessions 1998-99


As we approach the first anniversary of Maggot Caviar at the end of this month, I've decided to celebrate in true style by taking a breather. But not before we've had a bit of a weekend blow-out!

Mysterious London-based Japanese duo who have about as high a profile as Lord Lucan and Eton Crop combined. Delve into your favourite seach engine of choice and you will merely fing a brief outline of the group on discogs, four youtube clips, and the photo posted above.

Formed in 1995, the group released their debut single the following year, before signing to the Pickled Egg label of Leicester, going on to sporadically release a further two singles, one 10" ep, and two full length albums between 1996-2002..

Creating a curious blend of quirky ambient soundscapes mied with lounge jazz guitaar and vocal stylings, with a nod to the prevaling post rock genre of the times, the group recorded these two sessions in the dying months of the old millenium.

    1. No worries. I hadn't listened to them for a long time until I dug out these sessions earlier in the week. Will try and do some vinyl rips of their records at a later date.
