“The best Scottish pop band since Orange Juice” – Melody Maker
Now you’re gonna want this – more unreleased Orchids material! This is the enigmatic Scottish five-piece’s second session for John Peel, four years after the first, by which time they’d started phoning in football reports to the legendary DJ. Two of these songs were never released at the time, though one came out as a demo about 25 years later (the shoulda-been-single ‘Patience Is Mine’) – and the other two were very different on Striving For The Lazy Perfection.
Package also features a set of postcards with unseen pics. (PS – go and see them live if you can – and recent new LP Dreaming Kind on SkepWax is fab)
Songsheet: Patience Is Mine, Waiting Seems Vain, A Living Ken And Barbie (Back To Basics Mix), The Searching
