The Mummies - 1994 Peel Sessions. No label bootleg 7".

The Mummies on The John Peel Show. Some things were just meant to happen. It's a great shame that the few times the really great surf, garage and trash bands made it over La Manche they didn't record for Peel. So, no Teengenerate, no Oblivians, no Bassholes, no Untamed Youth, no Saturn V featuring Orbit Peel Sessions out there. We do have this, though, which is taken straight from an FM radio broadcast but still manages to sound slicker than the majority of the band's official releases. This is the second line-up of The 'Euro' Mummies with some fella from The Smugglers on bass. Enjoy.

  1. Hi AllIWant...
    thanks for this post and all the others
    you definitivly have good taste...
    but i have a question ; why don't you rip your vinyls (and they deserve it...) in a higher bitrate ? i usualy rip mine @320 kbps & it souns really better than 128 kbps
    can you think about it ,
    Thanks

  2. Thanks for the comment, and the compliment, Mr Noon. I rip to 128K to make small, 'listening copies'. I also, at the same time, make larger FLAC copies of everything for myself. If there was enough interest I could repost earlier rips at this higher quality.

  4. Gratitude? Pah! Just do the missionary work and get the good stuff into the ears of the ungrateful. Keep up the good work.

    As an experiment, I'll re-up some previous posts as FLACs at the same time as I post new MP3s.
