  • Peel has been to see God play live twice that week - on the previous Wednesday, with Pain Teens at the Moonlight Club in London, and that very evening, with Boss Hog at the new Marquee.
  • Two tracks are played to mark the passing of Slim Gaillard. Says Andy Kershaw will be featuring more material from the same artist the following night.


(Please add details of any commercial release of these sessions)


(JP: 'It's the first time I've ever been to the Marquee, the new Marquee. The room seems fine, but profoundly unpleasant bar staff. I asked this woman, they've got some kind of bottled beer I've never seen in my life before, and I said, "What's that?", and she said, "I don't know! For god's sake make up your mind!", and stomped off. I thought, ah, terrific.')

(JP: "I was very sad to hear during the week of the death of Slim Gaillard, who had been around for quite some time in London and I regret to say that I never got to see him playing live - and I shall regret that for a long time.")
(JP: "That's Slim Gaillard, who died this week. The first recording, from 1945. recorded live in Los Angeles and that was on an LP called 'McVouty, Slim & Bam' on Hep Records. ... Might be quite difficult to find that, because I picked it up, it must have been seven or eight years ago. And the second one was from the current compact disc in fact by the Dream Warriors. ... His name misspelled incidentally on the compact disc.")
