MP3: Cay - Peel Session 1998
I'm back. Had a loooooooong weekend, so until i've got the Gold Against The Soul article ready for the Manics Discography series, here's something else nice to tide you over. I thought i'd post another John Peel session from my mini archive. This time i've got four songs from Cay, a short lived female fronted British post-grunge band who released a series of great singles and one flawed but intermittently stunning album at the turn of the century (doesn't that sound impressive? Turn of the century I mean...). I was a big fan, and i've written about them on here in the past. Personally i'll always remember them for their stunning live shows (I got to see them with Muse, My Vitriol and Crashland), including a great main stage turn at the Reading Festival in 2000 or 2001 shortly before they disappeared.
This session was recorded on the 20th September 1998, and first broadcast on the 11th November in the same year. It would be the bands first Peel session (of two), and no doubt sooner or later I will get around to posting the second, which contains four unreleased songs that no doubt would have featured on their sadly never released second album. If you're a fan of Hole, Bikini Kill, Huggy Bear or anyone similar, they're definitely worth a listen, and you should be able to find their album very cheaply over at Amazon. My apologies for the relatively imperfect quality of these files, I think they were sourced from a tape recording of the original radio broadcast. Enjoy.
