The Orchids John Peel Session 08.05.90

24th February 2023

Format Info


“The best Scottish pop band since Orange Juice” – Melody Maker

Never before released on vinyl, this is the Sarah Records’ legends at their finest on their debut session for John Peel in 1990. The four songs here include a cracking version of live favourite ‘Caveman’ (better than the Lyceum version, how the band wanted it!) and two others destined to end up on their Unholy Soul album – plus one song never properly released at all.

Package also features a set of postcards with unseen pics; please buy the bundle if you’d like this and the second Orchids session – download codes inside front cover, before you ask. (PS – go and see them live if you can – and recent new LP Dreaming Kind on SkepWax is fab!)
