TRACK LISTING: Spoke / Canana / Crow / Disgrace

The 1994 session was recorded at BBC Maida Vale Studio 3 and originally aired on John Peel’s BBC Radio One show in July of 1994. The four songs were recorded to 24-track and then mixed to stereo on the same day. While a studio version of "Crow" was released in October of 1994 on the band"s debut album At Action Park, studio versions of "Canada", "Disgrace", and "Spoke" would not appear on any Shellac albums until much later (1998’s Terraform and 2007’s Excellent Italian Greyhound) - making the 1994 Peel Session recordings the only official recordings of these songs for several years thereafter.

TRACK LISTING: Ghosts / The End of Radio / Canada / Paco / Steady As She Goes / Billiard Player Song / Dog and Pony Show / Il Porno Star

The 2004 Peel session is a "Live From Maida Vale" session recorded live to stereo in front of a small audience at BBC Maida Vale Studio 4. It originally aired in December of that same year. As with the 1994 session, this recording includes songs that were previously unreleased and would not appear as album versions until years later. (Album versions of "The End of Radio", "Steady As She Goes", and "Paco" were released in 2007 on Excellent Italian Greyhound.)

Both the 2xLP and the 2xCD formats are packaged in a top-load single pocket wide spine jacket with two printed inner sleeves. The 2xLP includes a single CD of the full album.

The LP was mastered at Chicago Mastering Service. The vinyl pressing was manufactured at RTI in Camarillo, California, on 180 gram audiophile quality vinyl.


TV On The Radio’s Desperate Youth Blood Thirsty Babes, Return To Cookie Mountain, and Dear Science Albums To Be Reissued on May 10, 2019 Outside Of North America

We are excited to announce that we will be reissuing three full-length TV on the Radio albums - Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes, Return to Cookie Mountain and Dear Science - on May 10, in all territories outside of North America.

You can pre-order your copies HERE

Following the 2003 release of TV on the Radio’s stunning EP Young Liars, the band’s 2004 debut full-length Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes quickly set TV on the Radio on the path to being one of the most talked-about new groups in America. The band capped a year of critical acclaim and non-stop activity when their debut album was awarded The 2004 Shortlist Prize, which was created "to honor the most creative and adventurous albums of the year across all genres of music."

In early 2006, the band’s second studio album, Return to Cookie Mountain, garnered pre-release praise from multiple press outlets, including Pitchfork, before its official release in July of that same year. Named 2006 Album of the Year by Spin Magazine, the album includes guest appearances from David Bowie, Yeah Yeah Yeah’s guitarist Nick Zinner, and members of Celebration, Antibalas, and Blonde Redhead.

Originally released in 2008, the band’s third studio album, Dear Science, opened with vintage TVOTR, but the nostalgia quickly fades. With Dear Science, the band continued to push the limit with sonic experiments that fill out the rest of the album. Glimmers of drum & bass, drunken horn sections, and carefully-plucked strings spice up what's clearly TVOTR’s most challenging effort yet, rewriting the group's gloomy, stormy aesthetics with the same emotional core.

Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Youth is a double vinyl LP packaged in a full-color single LP jacket with lyric sheet insert. Double LP features an extra track and etching.

Return To Cookie Mountain is packaged in a full-color single LP jacket with a full-color inner sleeve and pressed on standard weight black vinyl.

Dear Science is packaged in a full-color gatefold LP jacket and pressed on standard weight black vinyl.

All LPs include a coupon for a digital download of the album.
