Peel Session: Billy Mahonie (1999)
Billy Mahonie are an instrumental post-rock band who formed in London in 1997 and who to date have released three very good and underappreciated records. After a few singles with indie stalwarts Fierce Panda, their debut album The Big Dig was released in 1999 on Too Pure to good reviews but small sales. This led to them being dropped by Too Pure and picked up by the lovely Southern who have since released 2001's What Becomes Before and 2003's Dust, all of which are well worth your time.
Near the beginning of their career, or to be exact on the 24th January 1999, they recorded this, the first of two sessions for the Peel show. As ever, hope you enjoy it.
