30 Years Ago: BASTRO record their second John Peel session

BASTRO recorded two sessions for John Peel's programme. This, their second, on this day in 1990. First played on the 23rd and repeated in October. Both times the songs were played in a full 12 minute block.

BASTRO's second album, Diablo Guapo, was released in 1989. Around the same time guitarist and vocalist David Grubbs (ex SQUIRREL BAIT) was also playing in BITCH MAGNET.
The third and final BASTRO album, Sing the Troubled Beast, was released in 1991. All three members of BASTRO - Grubbs, Bundy K. Brown and John McEntire - formed GASTR DEL SOL later that same year.
