This Heat were and are ahead of their time. Compared to their studio recordings the sound here is a bit rougher and it's fascinating how such music was made in live performances back then. Structure and chaos without a happy view. this slaps tbh batafurai. Everywhere at the end of time by The Caretaker. LIke tman1015, I am a little scared of this album. It is a deeply shocking and accurate musical portrayal of senile dementia -inasmuch as I've (sadly) observed members of friends and family become gradually subsumed by it.

Culled from two live John Peel Radio 1 sessions, the tracks were originally recorded and broadcast in 1977. The band, formed in late 1976, recorded and sent their demo to Peel (the demo itself would go on to receive some airplay).
The Peel Sessions is an EP by the English rock band the Smiths. The EP, which was released in 1988, was recorded on 18 May 1983, for the BBC Radio 1 disc jockey John Peel's show which was subsequently broadcast on 31 May 1983. All but "Miserable Lie" were already included on the 1984 album Hatful of Hollow. What Difference Does It Make?" – 3:12. Miserable Lie" – 4:38. Reel Around the Fountain" – 5:51. Handsome Devil" – 2:46.
The versions of material released elsewhere are sufficiently different to be worth owning in their own right, while the otherwise unreleased pieces are well up to This Heat's abnormally high standards. Newcomers get a good introduction to the band which doesn't contain any superfluous material. Obviously it's not as coherent as the main studio albums, but it's still a remarkably powerful offering from one of the most important bands of the last 30 years.
