The five-track Peel Session EP, recorded in January 1995, includes only one song Psycosyin, remixed slightly from the final collective Black Dog LP, Spanners released four months later. The other four songs are rather sinister-sounding fourth-world electro productions, similar in mood to much of Spanners though in many cases surprisingly superior. Spanners is the third studio album by English electronic music group The Black Dog. It was released via Warp on 16 January 1995. It peaked at number 30 on the UK Albums Chart. David Browne of Entertainment Weekly described it as a series of antiseptic, hypnosis-inducing machine burbles, but with just the right amount of jarring. Black Dog - Shaun Kirk.

I remember being head over heels with excitement when I looked up the radio schedule on BBC Ceefax in January 1995 to see that Black Dog would be doing a session on the John Peel show. Surely this couldn't be the obscure electronic group I had become obsessed with since first hearing their track Xeper on Trance Europe Express in 1993 ?
Of course it was them - this was John Peel after all, a man with the most eclectic and wonderful taste in music of all genres.

I grew up in Sligo in the north west of Ireland, and if I brought our radio upstairs, I could just about pick up BBC Radio One signals coming over from the border about 40 miles away. Blank C60 cassette at the ready, I recorded each of the wonderful tracks from the broadcast, and played that tape over and over on my walkman, until the session was released on Warp a few years later.

I still treasure that tape to this day, almost like a precious artefact of my never ending journey through the world of electronic music, which still continues today.

Shadehead is a beautiful subtle masterpiece, I've always been blown away by how they did the vocal sample in there.

I always remember before John introduced the opening track of the session he read out a short letter that one of the lad's fathers had written to John, explaining how his son and the group were making music and asking him to give it a listen. I thought it was a lovely touch - oh how I miss John Peel.
Years ago, when I'd started squatting on the edge of Leeds' city centre, I banged some acid with a near stranger from Ecuador, who'd moved into the same place as me around the same time... When it was clear the next day had begun, with the tripping now a little less full on, he was insistent that if I was gonna play any records, which I was keen to do since the lack of music was getting to me a bit at this point, they'd have to be calm and simple. So out came this EP and it fitted the moment real nice. We even happily listened to the run-out groove on the A-side for ages because, well, that seemed fine at the time too.

The tones that begin and then drift in and out on 'Shadehead' ring with an emotion that borders on, but never truly is, melancholic. They're given form by the track's gentle motifs and dynamic, yet sparse, drums. 'Rise Up' and 'Simperton' have a slightly uneasy nature due to their twisting and swirling higher frequencies. The B-side is more focused on percussion. 'Psycosyin' being a driving, stripped down rendition of the lengthy 'Psil Cosyin' that The Black Dog would go on to release that same month on their Spanners LP.
