Urusei Yatsura radio sessions album planned

Glasgow’s Urusei Yatsura release a BBC radio sessions album, You Are My Urusei Yatsura, on 2nd September via Rocket Girl.

Guitarist/singer Graham Kemp notes, “Some of the recordings we did for the BBC, I think, are better than what eventually made it onto vinyl. We did ‘Kewpies Like Watermelon’ live in the control room for Radio Scotland and we had just learned it so it sounds really fresh and exciting. The version of ‘Siamese’ is the best we ever captured, and I love the ‘Dice/Nae Dice’ tune we wrote especially for Peel”.
