The Cravats

Tonight in Session we've got living legends The Carvats who formed in 1977 and were firm favourites of John Peel.

They've just released a retrospective double CD Land Of The Giants on Overground Records, who are also releasing the band's first 1978 LP, The Cravats In Toytown, on CD for the first time.

The CD also features all their Small Wonder A & B sides as well as a bonus CD featuring a frankly psychedelic re-imagining of the LP by Penny Rimbaud of Crass using the original 8 track master tapes.

The live band features, original founder and voice, The Shend (The Cravats, The Very Things) as well as Cravats sax behemoth, Svor Naan along with Rex Speedway on guitar, Rev. J. Grumble on bass and Rampton Garstang, the tree-bending sticksmith.

You need to get yer ear lugs around this...enjoy.
