21 Songs for John: 6. The Cravats

The Cravats – Triplex Zone

One of my most treasured early John Peel memories was catching this band's session in 1979 and wondering how my life had ever seemed complete without them.  It was the first of four the band recorded for the show and mainman The Shend would go on to record two more with the Very Things.  A version of this track appeared in The Cravats' second in 1980 and this version was originally released on the Small Wonder LP The Cravats in Toytown that year.  It's currently available on the double CD of that album, released by Overground Records in 2012, which also contains all the Small Wonder A and B sides and a bonus CD featuring the LP tracks re-imagined by Penny Rimbaud using the original 8 track master.
