Listen to "Turn The Fan On" from their 2014 "BBC Session" now.
In December 2014, Self Defense left a show in Glasgow, drove overnight to the BBC studio in Maida Vale, and loaded in. The band recorded four songs in the style they were performed on that tour, rather different from their album versions. Slower, faster, longer, shorter, less busy, more intricate, the songs all take a step away from their origins and land someplace arguably more exciting.
In the intervening years, this session became a holy grail of sorts for Self Defense fans, with low-quality rips being offered on fileshare networks. Deathwish Inc is proud to finally give it a vinyl release.
