While struggling to book European dates during their Challenge for a Civilized Society tour, Unwound took an invite to record sessions for BBC DJ legend John Peel. On May 24, 1998, the trio taped "Side Effects of Being Tired" and "Hexenszene" from New Plastic Ideas, plus "Kantina/Were, Are and Was or Is" from Fake Train. They're all included on this disc, a pre-order only product pressed for just the top 1000 most rabid Unwound disciples. John Peel, however, was never included. "I think we all thought that's what a Peel Session was: You go and record with John Peel. And it was just some other guy."
