John talks about football (just for a change). Liverpool are 14 points behind with a game in hand after a considerable 5-0 win over Crystal Palace on 28 November, but he feels sorry for Coventry City, who that night were held to a 2-2 draw by Ipswich Town (information on matches retrieved from here).
He complains that when bands move to major labels, the flood of promotional issues seems to stop, thus there is a time delay between release and radio play. Two cases in point are the Senseless Things single and the new Sundays LP.
Only around 7 minutes are now missing from the show, between the end of File a and the start of File 5, and the track listing is probably comnplete
Aphex Twin, #1. Recorded 1992-09-09. No known commercial release.
(JP: 'I got a letter actually from one of the members of the band to say that they are hoping to come to Europe at the beginning of next year and to ask if I would be interested in doing a session with them which I certainly would and I’ll let them know. (It came to pass in July 93.) … Before that of course it was the Senseless Things and their current record Homophobic Asshole, and my only reason for not having played that on the radio previously was because I only got a copy of it myself about a week ago. This often happens actually when bands get on to kinda major labels that you no longer get promotional copies of their records which is fair enough – if they don’t want to send them that’s up to them – entirely so. But for those people who have written, for example, to ask why it is that I've not played anything from the recent Sundays LP – it's because I haven’t got a copy of it.')
(JP: 'The machine cuts it off again – I love the way it does that – oh my goodness technology where would we be without it. Ciccone Youth – they sound like a cute bunch don't they [no indication that he knows they are Sonic Youth], and that's Robert Palmer's Addicted To Love, done up in the only way you could sensibly do it.')
