Recently I did a post about DJ Johnny Peel and found that he was way too big a personality to cover in just one post, so I decided to embark upon a series of posts based on the artists he recorded over his lengthy career. He recorded so many notable artists that the Wiki page alphabetized the list of them. Someone said that he was basically “the man” in rock music for about a decade. So, using that Wiki list as a roadmap, this is the second post of the Peel session series.
At the top of the list are the 90 day men recorded by Peel back in February of 2001, towards the later part of his career. 90 day men is a math rock band with post-hardcore leanings, admittedly, I hadn’t heard of them before but this live recording of them is pretty good. Their sound is exactly what one would expect from the genre tags though far from being generic. Guitar riffs playing off the drums, appealing and rhythmic, there isn’t much not to love about this live album even with the muddy recording, 90%.
