Polvo - Peel Session

Label: Bootleg
Year: 1993

Polvo did two Peel Sessions, one in 1992, and this one, recorded February 7th, 1993. I don't have the other one, otherwise I would have made this post the ole' Two-fer Tuesday style, but alas...it is the crappier One-fer version. A thousand apologies.
This particular session is pretty weird, even by Polvo standards, and the songs are coated in a pretty thick sheen of guitar noise, sometimes to the point of, "oh, wait a minute...I know this song" a minute or two into the song. I think that's a lot cooler than just playing 'em straight though, and it makes this a worthwhile listen in and of itself. And by the way, that photo up there actually is Polvo sitting in a boat. Google image search...I love you.
Just as a sidebar though, there are a lot of requests being posted in that dialog thing over there on the right of the screen, and that's fine, in fact keep them coming because it sometimes jogs my memory about something I haven't listened to in awhile, but, make sure you also check the search function in the upper left hand corner of the page. Some of the stuff being requested has already been posted back in time somewhere. Also, if a link is broken on one of the old posts, it's better to mention it in the dialogue box rather then in the comments of the original post, as I (speaking for myself here) don't make it a habit to go back many months to look for new comments on old posts, so if it's there, it may never get seen, or at least not in any timely sort of manner. Cool?

Alright, that'll do for this evening.
