DJ Janice Long invited them to record a session for her evening show on the BBC. Drummer John Wills knew the songs, but there was not enough time to find and rehearse-in a full new band line-up to do the session. Australian band the Go-Betweens had become friends when the Servants opened for them on tour. Robert Forster of the band offered to play guitar, bringing in Robert Vickers on bass and Amanda Brown on violin.
