As I previously mentioned, I saw the Youth around the time they recorded this session for John Peel's Radio 1 show.
Daydream Nation had been released and the band were on the rise.
(Funny, Daydream Nation must be one of my least played records; I'm still not sure whether I like it or not.)
Surprisingly, they decided not to take the opportunity to market their latest product, but created a set for Peel with a twist: performing, in an all-knowing, post modern, deferential fashion, four numbers from The 'Mighty' Fall's canon.
O, we all did laugh at such good fun.
Where's all the fun gone?
