Legendary broadcaster John Peel had some stellar acts on his shows in his time, including some favourites from warp records. He got the usually mysterious Boards Of Canada on the show, and here's a track they didn't feature on the resulting EP, apparently due to a sample clearing issue which is a shame because it's a fine addition to the BoC backcatalogue. According to them it was the longest and fastest track they'd done since around 1997 or so, have a listen and enjoy.

Another firm favourite band of mine Broadcast actually had several Peel Sessions but never released any recordings of them. The original version of their cover of Nico's Sixty Forty would debut on one of these shows before appearing officially on the Warp20 (Unheard) compilation. Here's a little bootleg recording from their 1996 session with an unreleased gem, Forget Every Time.
