  • Summary: The first official release of the trio's two BBC radio sessions for John Peel (recorded in 1989 and 1990) includes covers of songs by the Sex Pistols and Jonathan Richman.

  1. It's a fittingly strong ending for a band that did almost everything right.
  2. For longtime fans, there’s little reason not to buy this. For newcomers, Peel Sessions might not be a logical starting point, but you’ll still walk away understanding why Galaxie 500 are still revered.
  3. A masterclass in why Galaxie were such a great band. [18 Feb 2006, p.36]
  4. A perfect summation of everything that was great about this band.

    A bijou flashback to a place of quiet nirvana. [Feb 2006, p.107]
  6. The band is in top form, sounding every bit as fresh and relevant in 2005 as they did 15-years prior.
  7. 40
    The trio only really let loose on their sprawling, wailing cover of Jonathan Richman's "Don't Let Your Youth Go To Waste." [Feb 2006, p.86]

    It's shocking how most of the indie community isn't familiar with Galaxie 500. One of the most essential underground acts in history.
