Considering The Fall recorded over 4000 Peel Sessions its surprising this is the only one to make it onto vinyl.

I checked and I was a little out, they recorded 24 sessions of which this was the second.

Smith at his acerbic meanest at a time of the best line up of the Band (Step Forward period). As we approach John Peel Day [13 October], it's a good time to reflect on this 12". Along with the likes of the Gang Of Four, the Slits & Joy Division, this is what a John Peel Session was all about in the late 70's. Four short tracks and a primed C90. A Christmas present for John, No Xmas for Junkies, we go on forever.
