Fluke: Top of the World (Peel Session)


It’s Christmas, even here in the deserty wilderness of 2bitpie.net where the posts fall intermittently throughout the year, dark like snow. Except that there’s this guy called Brian McGee who seems determined to bring in the Christmas cheer. He might as well be Santa, or some other benevolent figure who sneaks down chimneys because he has started sending me some incredibly rare Fluke material with permission to post it here on the site.

This stuff will be forthcoming gradually over the weeks leading up to Christmas (it’s sort-of-like an advent calendar!) but to kick us off, here is a recording, purportedly from 1991, of Top of the World at a Peel Session. The source is

The pack includes the original recording that Brian sent me and a cleaned up version by our resident mix-master-general Justin Credible.

Appreciative comments should be addressed to Brian. Here’s mine: thank you Brian – December is going to be a good month!

    Very nice for you to share, Brian!
    And big thanks to the site for hosting and posting all these goodies. A couple years back, i never dreamed i’d be able to hear some of these rarities and gigs. Thanks for keeping the Fluke love strong!
    Happy Holidays!

    Glad people enjoy it. As for “purportedly from 1991”, well, here’s the BBC’s official tracklist for the 1991 Peel Session 🙂

    Hey Brian – thanks again! Yes, I saw that only after I made the post; regardless, I still like the sound of “purportedly”, it gives the recording an indefinable mythical quality that wholly befits it!
