Oliver: Drunk Tank - End Bits (23 February 1992)
Housekeeping note - this video has been mistimed, the track is 3:25 in duration, not 6:55.
An early candidate for riff of the year from Unsane's less cultivated brothers in sound. Barrelling unstoppably onwards while the vocalist gives birth to The Brakes some 15 years later. There's talk of food, wastage, a rather horrifying form of feng shui and this ends up sounding like a deranged cannibal's lament.
The band had written to Peel and he particularly appreciated the fact that, like many American bands apparently, they had begun their letter by addressing him as "Mr. Peel".
