• John Peel's Music On BFBS
  • 1996-09-15
  • Start of show: "Hello again dearly beloved, it's another John Peel's Music On BFBS. Some good guitarring in this tune."
  • Several references to PJ Harvey's recent Peel Acres session (TX 21 September 1996) and we are treated to three tracks from an advance copy of her new LP with John Parish. Apparently, she sat on the same futon occupied by Jarvis Cocker when Pulp visited, and JP speculates on being able to chop the cover into pieces and sell it.


  • None


(JP: 'An exciting week for us at Peel Acres, because in the middle of the week PJ Harvey came down to record some new songs for my domestic programmes in our kind of, back room, really, it was a lovely day, and we sat outside on the road with a few bottles of beer and bottles of red wine and stuff. There's not a lot of traffic there, so we were able to sit on the road or on the fence and listen to her carolling away in our house, and most agreeable it was too. As a consequence of this, I got an advance copy of the forthcoming LP.')
(JP: 'You thought I'd nodded off there, didn't you? Admnit it!')
(JP: 'He's from around here wherever you are! That sounds like a sort of publicity thing, but it's absolutely true. Billy Bragg, what a great bloke he is.')
