'BBC Sessions' is a 14 song CD which chronologically compiles 3 Peel Sessions The Passage recorded, plus 3 demos from 1982 which were never released. The Passage existed in the early 80s in Manchester. They had an identifiable sound which merged a Factory Records and The Fall feel with the tom tom heavy drum style which was commercialized by bands like Adam & the Ants and Bow Wow Wow. Band leader Dick Witts wrote thoughtful lyrics with the passion of Paul Weller's finest Jam compositions. Some of his lyrics explored the human condition, some were political, and some talked about people or situations. Unique to The Passage were the piano, synth, and tympani sounds. While these same elements have been used by other bands, no one used any of the elements in quite the way that The Passage did. All of this made The Passage a band loved by a core group of followers, but obscure to the bulk of the record buying public. Considering this fact, it is heartening that John Peel invited them to record for his Peel Sessions show on three separate occasions: November 1980, October 1981 and June 1982. 'BBC Sessions' is a really fine disc that will be enjoyed by any fan of the Passage.
