John Peel Wiki


  • 1988-10-05
  • Start of show: "A bonny start for bubbling brunette John Walters. I particularly liked the rapping with Overlord X and indeed the rapping by Overlord X. Our sessions come, as Walters said, from the Funky Ginger and My Bloody Valentine. And if you heard him you'll know he played a new tune from the Fall and said that I'd play another one. This is it."
  • Two played from the Public Enemy LP 'It Takes A Nation Of Millions' and three from new Strange Fruit releases.
  • Peel looks forward to a West country trip over the weekend for a couple of gigs. After the show on this evening, he is heading out to see the Pixies.



(JP: "Actually, they come from Yeovil, as I say, and I shall be heading out that way and indeed beyond on Saturday to Totnes, where I am doing a gig with the Royal Assassins and Clear & The Cloud, the Bernhards, Shanks, and the Icebergs. All this starts fairly early in the day, I think, but my contribution at about 8 o'clock in the evening. So that's in Totnes on Saturday - a wide range of entertainments.")
(JP: "And after Bob, Bob, Bob And Bob - there's a kind of logic to this - the Four Brothers.")
(JP: "John Peel Roadshow goes to Portsmouth Polytechnic, I think, on Friday night, and I will be taking the record of that with me and hoping there will be lots of dancing. That's what I want to see.")
(JP: "In case you're wondering why John Peel Roadshow is out and about so much this weekend, Totnes and Portsmouth, this record goes some way to explaining that.")

(JP: "I'm off to see the Pixies, who start in about 25 seconds apparently.")
