#057: Magic Hour - Will They Turn You On or Will They Turn on You
And this series continues to be Magic Hour top-heavy with their sixth appearance, and the second appearance of their second album, this time the CD that I bought on release.
The album was, according to the sleeve, “Recorded Summer/Autumn 1994” however three of the tracks (including the epic Passing Words) had previously been recorded in May of that year for a Peel Session. You can hear the full Peel Session here or if you prefer to hear some of it with Peelie’s intro/outro, the first 90 minutes of the three hour show can be listened to on the Internet Archive and includes the first two tracks of the session.
I’m glad there are quite a lot of Peel shows out there because it’s great to listen to a show periodically to remind yourself that no one has come even close to what he was doing back then.
