THE LIGGERS Peel Session (1980)

Μια απ'τις συμπαθείς μα βραχύβιες και με ελάχιστη δισκογραφική παρουσία μπάντες της μετα-πανκ περιόδου που ξεπήδησαν στο Μάντσεστερ, παράπλευρα στη Object Music, οι THE LIGGERS, εμφανίστηκαν σε κανα-δυό συλλογές της εποχής κι έκαναν ένα radio session για το ΒΒC..."Πρώτα πεθαίνουν τα Όνειρα" τραγούδησαν το Σεπτέμβρη του 1980 στο show του John Peel. Ύστερα χάθηκαν. Κι αυτή η μικρή φτιάξτην-μόνος-σου ομορφιά έκτοτε τους στοιχειώνει...

[One of the postpunk/diy short-lived bands that left no much music behind, Manchester's THE LIGGERS did this 3-track session for John Peel's radio show in September 1980.]

1. Me and Mary Jane
2. Pretty Girl
3. Dreams Die First

The Liggers:
Patti Owens (keys, vocals), Gina Sobers (bass, keys), Neil Anderson (guitar, drums), Andrew (guitar), Donna Sullivan (bass, keys)

I have been searching forever for The Liggers Peel Sessions. I originally recorded the session on a casette as a 16 year old and then lost it, now 30 years later....Thanks. Tmo

As with the earlier comment, it's great I've found this. I taped "Me and Mary Jane" when it was played, but didn't keep a record of who it was by. 30 years later (I was 15 at the time), I finally know this is by The Liggers.

My Peel Sessions book, though, says the session was transmitted on 20th October '80 and re-transmitted on 18/11.
