21 Songs for John: 16 - Haunted House

Haunted House – The Kindness

John Peel spoke of Lianne Hall with the kind of awe he'd rarely employed since attempting to describe the voice of Sandy Denny.  She recorded two sessions and an additional two tracks for his Xmas 2001 show and was a great favourite of the DJ in his later years.  Now, she teams up with Paul Hartnoll of Orbital as Haunted House and this track will feature on their forthcoming album Brave The Woods.  Orbital were a staple of the John Peel show throughout the nineties, taking techno away from the self-selected club-going elite and into appreciative living rooms and minds all over the world, while pioneering an entirely new use for miners' head lamps.  They contributed five sessions including a set from the 1994 Glastonbury Festival and were frequent visitors to the festive fifty, charting on five occasions.
