King were a sort of Punk super group that featured Captain Sensible from the Damned, Henry Badowski (aka Henry Daze) from Chelsea, Dave Berk from Johnny Moped and Kym Bradshaw from The Saints. The group lasted two months, only played a handful of gigs and recorded this Peel Session. You'll recognize Anti-Pope from the Damned's Machine Gun Etiquette album. A part of the song My Baby Don't Care became a part of the Damned song I Just Can't Be Happy Today. Jet Boy Jet Girl was previously recorded by Captain Sensible & The Softies and the song Baby Sign Here With Me was recorded by Henry Badowski for a solo single in 1979 backed by Dave Berk on Drums, James Stevenson from Chelsea on Guitar and Bass, and Alex Kolkowski on Violin who also plays Violin on this session. Anti-Pope from this session was officially released in 1991 on the CD Winters Of Discontent - The Peel Sessions 77-83. This is from a recent re-broadcast and the sound quality is excellent.

Ut - Peel Session 1984 + Germany 1986

Ut began in 1978 as a No Wave band and in the 1980s progressed to playing a more avant garde sound. They existed until 1991 and in that time recorded four albums and did two Peel Sessions. The session here is two songs from their first one. Sound quality is excellent. And, the live show is an audience recording with good sound quality. Can anyone help with the song titles?
