About this item
Super Furry Animals release a compilation of their radio sessions for the BBC available as an 180g vinyl box set and double cd (featuring Mark James Yeti artwork throughout plus 2 new illustrations by Pete Fowler) via Strangetown. This includes the eight sessions recorded for the BBC including those for John Peel and Mark Radcliffe.
This follows the vinyl, cd and digital remastered re-issues of their top twenty albums, Mwng (2015 Domino Recordings), Fuzzy Logic (2016, BMG) and Radiator (2017, BMG).
In a press release the band had this to say about Super Furry Animals at the BBC: "The five, excitable kids of the Super Furry Animals saw many wonders of the modern world through our innocent eyes, but finding ourselves playing songs in John Peel's home, or in the carpeted muffle of Maida Vale, elevated the experience to new levels. Our thanks go to those rescuing the recordings from our dusty lofts, Kliph Scurlock and Donal Whelan, and the surgical attention to detail by the great artistic minds of Mark James and Pete Fowler. Also, long live public broadcasting."
Barry says: The Super Furries in absolute top form over 2 CD's or 4 LP's. Expect all the favourites from some of the greatest live moments in their extensive back catalog. Absolutely essential listening, a superb collection.
