Subtitled Peel Show Hits & Long-Lost Lo-Fi Favourites Volume One: 1976-80. Excellent 2008 collection of spiky 70's Punk and Pop Peel favorites that may be forgotten by the masses, but remain memory-tickling treats to all the avid Peel listeners nearly 30 years after their release. Anyone who ever cuddled up alone at night with Peel will recognize the glee with which he pounced on these devil-may-care, slightly broken Pop songs. Indie also-rans these bands may have been in the Sting 'n' Bono scheme of things, but add up all these flashes of underdog genius, and here's a CD to rival any other from the era of the questionable stringy tie.
