B.o.C chase up their hypnotic mix on the WXAXRXP NTS weekender with their a reissue of their 1998 ‘Peel Session’, augmented with the previously unavailable ‘XYZ’ off the same session. The OG EP’s trio of classic versions remain in place, revolving a beautifully reworked take on ‘Aquarius (Version 3)’, plus the neck-snap breaks and head kissing licks of ‘Happy Cycling’, and the bucolic air of ‘Olson (Version 3)’. ‘XYZ’ was recorded during the same session but never made it to the original release. It’s an eight minute beauty gently escalating from windswept, flyaway psych riffs to a fractious sort of folksy drill ’n bass onslaught.
