Five Years Volume One, Track 6 - Decoration

Decoration - Candidate

Decoration share the double distinction of being one of the last great bands discovered by John Peel and appearing in the very first stream of Dandelion shows back in June 2006.

Two of their tracks appeared in the 2004 festive fifty in the year of Peel's passing, and they went on to achieve their highest placing when 'Square Mile' made number three in the Dandelion chart of 2008.

They've recorded three sessions for Andy Morrison's show, in June 2007, September 2008 and October 2009, and remain an emblematic band for both the station and for listeners of the later John Peel shows. 'Candidate' is the version from their 'Flippant' album and reached number 11 in the inaugural Dandelion festive fifty of 2006.
