Even As We Speak - Yellow Food: BBC Sessions

One of our more popular posts in the past few months featured a new EP from Australian band Even As We Speak (our feature here).  The Black Forest EP marked the band's return from a 25-year hiatus, and finds them in peak form.  But while we are waiting for more new songs from the well-rested and obviously rejuvenated band, we wondered whether we could get our hands on some of their past work.  Well, we didn't have to wonder long as Emotional Response Records, the mighty little label that released The Black Forest also gifted the world with Yellow Food: BBC Sessions, a compilation of recordings Even As We Speak made for John Peel and Mark Goodier at the BBC on four occasions in 1992 and 1993.  The compilation contains a generous 16 songs of wide ranging indie pop that demonstrates why the band was one of the darlings of the Sarah Records stable.  You can get it from the label at the Bandcamp link below.  Act fast before the electrons are all purchased and there are no more.
