Following up their full-length album, The Earth Is Blue, on their new label 20/20/20, Damon & Naomi have assembled the rare, often-bootlegged, Galaxie 500 Peel Sessions, which capture the group at the height of their abilities and feature a selection of the band’s personal favorites along with some unexpected cover songs. Known by fans for years, these tracks now are made officially available for the first time.

The members of Galaxie 500 were not expecting the reception they received when they went overseas in 1989. While their nascent fame in the U.S. was slowly rising, England caught on quickly, and the bewildered band played to sold-out audiences throughout Mother Britain. Of course, nothing was more of an honor than being asked by music weathervane and scholar John Peel to record a session for his BBC One Radio show. Their first session, recorded September 24th, 1989, produced live versions of “Flowers, “Blue Thunder,” “Decomposing Trees,” and The Modern Lovers’ “Don’t Let Our Youth Go To Waste.” A year later, they were back again, playing even larger venues, and trying out new material for their second session. Recorded October 30th, 1990, Galaxie 500 did “When Will You Come Home,” as well as covers of

Buffy St. Marie (“Moonshot”), Young Marble Giants (“Final Day”), and a left-field version of the Sex Pistols’ “Submission.”

Stunning artwork by New Yorker illustrator Lara Tomlin, and a special low price, round out the package beautifully.
