The tension is mounting…temperature’s rising…fever is high…it’s the penultimate instalment of my Peel Sessions Poll! I feel I must apologise profusely to the several of you who have been hanging on for this, but I have once again taken too much on and am slowly clearing a backlog. Now that the Festive Fifty series that I allowed the great Adamski to talk me into is now finished, we should see the light soonish: but I’m sticking to my guns and not allowing myself to be compromised by any deadlines.
This time around, we still have several surprises: two from 2001, including a classic live Maida Vale debut, one rarity from the seventies, and one band that has been conspicuous by its absence finally deigns to make an appearance (for the last time? I know and you don’t, so keep listening, won’t you?)
