The Wolfhounds were brutally, beautifully loud. Many of the records they made between 1986 and 1990 stand up today as some of the best records of that era.
The tail end of 1988 was enriched by three brilliant singles from very different bands who'd never quite found an audience:
• Elephant Stone - The Stone Roses
• There She Goes - The La's
• Rent Act - The Wolfhounds
Everyone knows what happened to the first two bands. The Wolfhounds were just as good, but never got the break. They split up in 1990 leaving a fine legacy.
Their final Peel Session was broadcast on 1 February 1988:
William Randolf Hearse
Son Of Nothing
EDIT: I originally uploaded Rule Of Thumb from the previous Peel Session. I've corrected that. And, yes, all three Wolfhounds Peel Sessions would make a great album, and an official release would give these songs higher fidelity than my ropey old tapes.
