This CD comprises all 3 of The Diagram Brothers sessions for John Peel's show, recorded 1980-82 & now digitally remastered for release c/o James Nice's exemplary Les Temp Modernes imprint.

A discordant Manchunian hybrid of Devo, XTC & Basil Fawlty, The Diagram Brothers were, along with Linder Sterling's marvellous Ludus, a pivotal act on Richard Boon's pioneering New Hormones label at the height of the post-punk era. And, as with Ludus, though they didn't shift many (ahem) "units" during their brief lifetime, their jarring & idiosyncratic music ("Discordo" they called it) sounds just as brilliantly off-kilter now as it did back then... more so, probably. The final session here, from July 1982, is one of the first I can remember recording off of Peel's show as a curious teenager (who, on reflection, probably should've been doing his maths homework). Though that cassette fell apart many, MANY years ago, the instant "The Expert" began parping out of the speakers everything - lyrics, music, the colour of my bedroom curtains! - came flooding back. "Hey Dad" is, arguably, even better - hearing it again made me laugh out loud, as did many other of the tracks here - &, shamefully, I'd completely forgotten about their genius version of "You've Got To Pick A Pocket Two". In all honesty, those 3 songs alone are probably worth a tenner of anyone's money. Sounds like a postal bargain to me...

If XTC were to get drunk with Half Man Half Biscuit and make an album... Great to hear the old favourites with a raw, live edge. God bless Peel.
