The information above isn't strictly correct. I've got this Peel Session on cassette, recorded from the radio at the time, and it's actually John Peel himself who names the first three tracks (rather than asking the listeners). I remember being very pleased at the time :)

Track names are by John Peel, right ?

Probably my least favorite Autechre release. Still like most of their works they are intregal parts of the family tree so you can't miss them or u felt like you missed some of the progression. Having said that, sonically, this may be the precursor to their sound found on Quartice. The production here compared to C-slide in just 2 years earlier in1997 you have probably the biggest jump in depth of their works. This lives and breaths while C-suite is like looking at a painting. Gelk is the example I'm speaking to. I don't know the difference from 1997 to 1999 when it comes to the techniques they used to record and master but there is significant difference depth, volume and punch wise. Makes me wish their pre 1996 stuff had this umph. But then again we wouldn't have all these age long debates of old autchre versus new now would we?

What are you saying about this?
Incredible! The minimum i can say about these tracks is that they are mesmerizing gorgeous!
But do you know what exactly happen when the first track starts?WHOOOAAAAHZZZ man...
This is a maximum excellent album: the melodies are folded inside the beats with a super sensibility oveflowing change wonderfully crafted and continuosly shaped with innovative layers after each millisecond.Their use of melody and rhythm is a contemprary music masterpiece from now on.
These pieces can be used spaciously to try to start a communication between extra terrestrial being among space planets.

Good but not perfect. Then again these tracks were performed live, so they didn't have the time to tweak and perfect them like a studio release would have done. The opening track is the highlight here. All in all, this is not a release you need unless you are a die hard Autechre fan.

The first track is definatly the best on the CD. "Gelk" is excellent, starting off delicately and then moving onto a darker feel before comming back to something between the two.
The next two tracks are good, but the last track "19 Headaches" is the worst on the CD. Its not awful, but theres nothing special about it.
The CD doesn't compare to Autechres albums, but then how could it?

"gelk" and "blfil" are great! the other two songs are rotten, but those two songs are worth it really, and this ep is really cheap anyway. i suggest you buy it.
