• 1992-01-05
  • Start of show: 'Howdy folks. You're leaving Kershaw County and entering Peel County.'
  • The session tracks 'Violet' and 'Doll Parts', although written by Courtney Love in 1991, were not officially released until 1994 on the CD Live Through This, and thus could be considered for the PAE (Peel Ahead Of Everyone) index in Ken Garner's The Peel Sessions (BBC Books, 2007).
  • Tracks marked with † are lacking in detail: all corrections welcome.
  • JP wasn't sure who sang the track Ag Tha Wondi Juway in part 4. He wasn't sure whether it was Bugga or Roshney that sang the track.  In fact Roshney was the Bhangra group and Bugga was the singer of the band, whose real name was Sukhbir Ral.


  • Milk, one and only session. Recorded 1991-11-14. No known commercial release.
  • Hole, #1. Recorded 1991-11-19. Available on EP Ask For It (Caroline).

  • JP911222a.mp3 and JP911228a.mp3 are two misnamed shows on 30242 which actually form two 10 minute segments of the start of this show. Strangely there are files available on the net almost byte for byte the same size and length as parts 1 to 4 referred to above, which appear to follow on from these two 10-minute tapes, i.e. the tape/file flips occur at different points of the show. The files do not play all the way to the end so they are corrupt. This suggests that they have been extracted from a corrupt archive file at some point. Therefore ensure that the files you have, come from the Megaupload links below.

  • There is an inferior version of this show on the Mooo Server (Phil/1992) but may help with missing links during file flips.
