Young Marble Giants  -  Brand - New - Life (JPS) (1980)

The August 26th 1980 Dale Griffin produced John Peel Session version of Brand - New - Life is considerably more hard-edged than the album track.  Stuart’s Rickenbacker and Alison’s vocal are much to the fore, far clearer.  For the session Griffin employed some nefarious, decrepit BBC archive tech to convert the band’s home-made mono drum-machine into stereo, and the band were chuffed.
