Echo and The Bunnymen - Sixth Peel Session
Their sixth Peel session (and second of the year), this has got some interesting takes on what would become Ocean Rain, features an early, half formed version of Yo-Yo Man (Watch Out Below) with different lyrics.
The Cure - First Peel Session
I don't have a massive amount of time for the Cure, I kinda lose interest post Seventeen Seconds. This session is from 1978 though, so Robert Smith sounds far less whinging that he normally does. Massive extra bonus points for having Michael Dempsey in the line-up, who ended up in Sulk era Associates playing bass and so is godlike.
Josef K - First Peel Session
At least I think it's the first, I'm not massively sure there was a second. Well, not officially at least. Anyway, this has a strange cover of Applebush sung by the wife of Malcolm Ross.
More sessions later perhaps, I hadn't realised how much of them I had......
