Keeping It Peel – bis


Ah, bis. Even if you don’t know any of their songs there’s a good chance you’ll have heard of the Glasgow three piece, due to their appearance on Top of the Pops many years ago when they were the first unsigned band to do so.
Me and bis have a bit of an uneasy relationship. There’s enough of their stuff that I really like to make me enjoy them, but there’s also a few songs that I can barely listen to. General rule of thumb for me tends to be avoiding most of the early stuff, although there are a few pop gems sprinkled in there, and concentrate more on the later material. Social Dancing is a good album, and ridiculously cheap to download from Amazon according to that link. The posted Peel Session, the band’s third, draws from that album.

The first single from Social Dancing, Eurodisco, placed at number 7 in the 1998 Festive Fifty, the fourth year in a row bis had a song included.
