Tracklisting[]

(JP: 'That's the spirit, said he patronisingly.')
  • More Fiends: 'Vinyl Grind' (session) first session track
(JP (following on from the last line of the previous track, "Did you ever notice, the lower a guy wears his guitar, the more of a jerk he is?"): 'That's a very good point, actually. I'd not thought about it, but by and large I think it is true....I must note that down and use it myself: drop it into conversation at some of the smart parties I go to and everybody says, "Yeah yeah, he's right, he's absolutely right."')
(JP: 'As heard on the Steve Wright programme only yesterday afternoon, and somebody reminded me yesterday that I'd said if I ever heard Inspiral Carpets on Steve Wright's programme, I'd play the Pet Shop Boys on this programme. Well I'm not going to, at least not tonight anyway.')[2]
(JP: 'Here's one for Mrs Ravenscroft')

Footnotes
  1. YouTube. Released to celebrate WBA's 1-0 FA Cup Final victory in 1968, with Jeff Astle scoring the lone goal. Peel speaks favourably of playing Astle's single release 'Sweet Water' and would play it again after the player's death in 2002.
  2. The band would eventually get a Peel session, broadcast on 10 October 2002.
