Unwound Peel Session. yeah, I’d listen to that. YouTube bootleg version above. The official release on Numero Group is easily findable at most streaming or download places. Here’s the iTunes page. Justin Trosper gives some deep background on NPR’s All Songs Considered.

“While struggling to book European dates during their Challenge for a Civilized Society tour, Unwound took an invite to record sessions for BBC DJ legend John Peel. On May 24, 1998, the trio taped “Side Effects of Being Tired” and “Hexenszene” from New Plastic Ideas, plus “Kantina/Were, Are and Was or Is” from Fake Train.””
