Sessionology

Main Page

In the three and a half years of the Graveyard Shift hundreds of bands came into the BBC Manchester Studios off Oxford Road to play three or four tracks live. Unlike other Radio 1 programs which played pre-recorded sessions the sessions on the Mark Radcliffe show were truly live. We got to hear them as they were being played which also meant that we could hear any mistakes, cock-ups or the true brilliance of bands which is usually destroyed in the production room.

There had been some traffic problems getting to the festival. They had been stuck behind the car carrying David Bowie's coat. Only Mark actually made it to the show. Maconie went missing and Lard does a live link from the festival pub, clearly drunk,before disappearing completely.
