In 1997, Olivia Tremor Control recorded a BBC session with legendary DJ John Peel. For one reason or another, the results have been lost to history. Many top scholars believed the music recorded would never be recovered. Until now!
It is now 2013. Pitchfork reports that Chunklet has acquired the long-lost sessions. Men and women of science and progress, the folks at Chunklet are releasing this music on vinyl for the masses. This discovery is particularly exciting in that it contains previously unreleased music by the band, in addition to Olivia Tremor Control classics like “Green Typewriters.”
The first 200 to order these recordings will receive their copies on clear vinyl. Others, those busy with thumb-twiddling, will receive theirs on red vinyl. All copies come with a download code, evening the field for all involved. Orders are expected to ship in early/mid January. Science marches on.
