JP: "And this is Seefeel. They sent me a demo tape a couple of years ago, actually they delivered it in person I seem to remember, a rather grumpy young man and woman, and they turned up at the BBC and gave me this cassette and I went away and listened to it because that’s the kind of great guy I am. And I phoned them up and it was like “What are you phoning us for fatso?” and I couldn’t understand why they have given it to me, they were very grumpy indeed"
JP: "Actually to be honest they don't sound like a load of fun do they? I can't imagine them saying "Come on, race you to the ice cream van""
JP: “And he (Josh) is doing the twelve inch singles at the moment and of course every once in a while he comes up with something faintly embarrassing and he insisted that I play you this again. I played it once before back in 1986 and in case you don’t quite understand why I’m playing this, the voice that’s sampled on it is, I’m afraid, mine. It’s taken from a Tyrannosaurus Rex LP where I was reading one of Marc Bolan’s stories. Very embarrassing but I do get the occasional request for this so…"
JP: "Well I think you’ve probably had enough of that. You can have too much of a good thing in my view""
JP: “Well rather a pathetic little joke really but I had to work it into the program somehow. That’s “The New Order” in fact and “You’ve got me high” and that was recorded sometime in the 1960s”
