Pressed on heavyweight black vinyl, ‘The John Peel Sessions 1979 – 1983’ is a collection of all the BBC Radio 1 John Peel sessions that they performed in the formative years of the band.
Formed in Liverpool in 1978, this collection of 21 tracks are from the very beginning of the bands existence. According to guitarist Will Sergeant, these recordings could quite simply be some of the most significant in the bands career - “Without John Peel sessions, Echo And The Bunnymen in my opinion, would not exist! It’s that simple. The band got so much support from him and John Walters (Peel’s producer). Recording a Peel session was essential to the development of our songwriting skills while at the same time giving us amazing exposure and self-belief.”
During this period (1979-1983) for the band, they became one of the most important bands of the post-punk scene.
