 You Must Hear Them All ; The Peel Sessions

When you get it published Steve70nearly, just say they're all from MCR and all piss over that version due to superior production techniques. It's a great session that shows how the album should have sounded. A quick snip here and an add on there should fix a dodgy review. :)

Session Eighteen - 17th December 1994

Image

MES
Craig Scanlon - guitar
Steve Hanley - bass
Brix Smith - guitar, vox
Dave Bush - keyboards
Simon Wolstencroft - drums
Karl Burns - drums

10 months on and immediately we are struck with the news that not one but two ex-Fall members have returned - Brix Smith and Karl Burns were back in the fold. :clap: And thus we are provided with a festive session, first a re-run of Glam Racket segued with a Brix composition, Star, to make Glam Racket-Star. It is amazing, the play off between the two vocal lines is simply astonishing, and the glam-rock beat provided by the group is upped in tempo compared to the original. Next two Xmas specials, Jingle Bell Rock and Hark! The Herald Angels Sing - both purposely abysmal with Brix howling out a terribly pitched chorus line to the latter. To conclude we have Numb At The Lodge, an early version of Feeling Numb that would appear on the next album Cerebral Caustic two months later. Also on the show was another session by Elastica, who must have been in cahoots with The Fall as they too played a couple of Xmas numbers. And to complete the seasonal flavour, this years Festive Fifty began it's run down, featuring among others Hole, Nirvana and the magnificent Underworld. You can't really ask for much more. :)
In the news, Rover announced the production of the once popular Montego and Maestro had ended, and a high court ruled that Myra Hindley would never be released. I had a Maestro once. :(

Session Nineteen - 22nd December 1995

Image

MES
Brix Smith - Guitar
Steve Hanley - Bass
Julia Nagle - Keyboards
"Funky" Simon Wolstencroft - Drums
Karl Burns - Drums
Lucy Rimmer - Vocals

Late in 1995, serious changes would take place. Dave Bush would be ousted from his keyboards to be replaced with Julia Nagle, but even more surprising, Craig Scanlon was removed due to basically not being arsed anymore. Craig had been onboard for an unprecidented 16 years, but things in Fall world were beginning to crumble. He Pep! and Oleano were both to be released on the Light User Syndrome in the summer whereas Chilinist was on The Chiselers single and Nancy Sinatra's The City Never Sleeps was only recorded for this season. I love Oleano, it's a fabulous song powered by an irresistible 4-note motif which anchors the whole thing. Also on the Peel show this night were Prince Far I in session and tracks from Dick Dale and Whirling Pig Dervish. In the real world David Cone signed a $19.5 million 3 year contract with the NY Yankees. My publisher's going to love this.

My favourite track: Oleano

That's another great review Steve, I agree with you about Oleano. I also love HePep! , both these are better than the album tracks. Poor Little Lewis got upset when Brixie screamed. :lol:

It won't be published, I've already warned you for plagiarism, which is bad enough at the best of times, but completely out of order on my forum. Well I've decided I won't be editing your work for grammatical failings anymore, you're on your own from now on.

Steve70something warned for smug and high handed expectations.

Session 20 - 18th August 1996

Image

MES
Brix Smith - Guitar
Steve Hanley - Bass
Julia Nagle - Keyboards
"Funky" Si Wolstencroft - Drums
Karl Burns - Drums

Quite a short turnaround since the last, the only casualty in that 8 month period being Lucy Rimmer. Sadly though things behind the scenes were falling apart, this was to be the last appearance on a Peel session from Brix and Funky Si. On offer this time were two tracks from the recent Light User Syndrome LP - D.I.Y. Meat and Spinetrak, both played fast and furiously, and imo a step up from their original counterparts. MES himself though did seem to struggle a bit keeping up. Next was a new track called Spencer which would appear on the next LP Levitate a year later in a very different form. Here it was a weird synth-heavy tune with MES' vocals deep in the mix and difficult to decipher. The final track was a cover of an old Captain Beefheart song, Beatle Bones 'N' Smokin' Stones. I'm no Beefheart fan so can't really comment, but tickle me in Tywyn this was a fascinating remake that must have pleased Peel no end. Also on tonight's show, tracks from The Wedding Present, Billy Bragg and Nuw Idol. Nothing newsworthy happened of note and the bloody Spice Girls were #1 in the hit parade with Wannabe.


Let's play them all with yet another out of era image. :rolleyes:

Session Twenty One - 3rd March 1998

Image

MES
Steve Hanley - Bass
Julia Nagle - Keyboards
"Funky" Simon Wolstencroft - Drums
Karl Burns - Drums
John Rolleson - backing vocals

Eighteen months after the last session the group was rapidly approaching meltdown: this would be Hanley's last Peel session after a run of nearly eighteen years and Brownies was only a month away. Of the broadcast tracks, Calendar was a collaboration with Badly Drawn Boy and had recently been released on a single with Masquerade. Touch Sensitive would be released as a single in a year's time and Jungle Rock was on the Levitate album which was released the previous year. Also on the Peel show tonight were Lee Perry, Ultravibe, and Soft Machine. In the real world Celine Dion was riding high in the charts, Villa were above Leicester City, and construction on the Milennium Dome began.

My favourite track: Touch Sensitive

I'll tell you what's up, you've written a very poor chapter. It seems to dwell too much on nonsense like Celine Dion and Aston Villa, neither of whom I care for, whilst getting basic Fall facts irretrievably wrong. To wit; "Funky" Simon Wolstencroft left the gruppe a full seven months prior to this recording. Also Julia played guitar as well as keyboards on this session. Shoddy is not the word, and I can only assume you jotted this down in a hurry having spent the afternoon watching STM Sports lose 3-0 to Connor's Quay Nomads in the Welsh League Cup final.

I can't win, can I? When I look stuff up I get warned for plagiarism and when I try to do stuff from memory I get warned for making mistakes. :angry:
