MagooCiting influences from Guided by Voices and Pavement to 'a healthy dollop of Radio Peel', Magoo formed in Norwich, UK, in 1993, featuring Andrew Rayner (vocals, guitar), Jen Heagran (bass, vocals) Owen Turner (guitar, vocals), and Stacey Gow (drums, percussion, vocals). Magoo describe their Peel Sessions as 'the biggest dream come true for all of us,' despite the fact the broke the organ and got lost in the studio's corridors. They released three singles on their own Noisebox Records before signing to Chemikal Underground in 1997. Two albums followed: 'The Soateramic Sounds of Magoo' and 'Vote the Pacifist Ticket Today'. Dropped by Chemikal Underground, the band went on to release another two albums: 'Realist Week' and 'The All Electric Amusement Arcade' (2004). The band recorded a whopping seven Peel sessions, the last of which Peel sadly never got to hear.
