(JP: 'We've found the missing Nirvana session which you missed last weekend: it'll be rescheduled as soon as possible. Guess who I was supposed to see earlier on this evening and got into town too late?')
(JP: 'A full afternoon for me today because I went to see Ipswich playing Millwall, but it was one of those games, it was not a fun afternoon, it must be said: a goalless draw with the occasional kind of light drizzle to brighten the afternoon, and it was one of those games when the ball spent so much time in the air that you rather hoped, like in one of those science fiction films, where somebody'd boot it up in the air and it'd just keep going, and you'd have to abandon the match and you could go home.') (match report)
(JP: 'I'm going to play you eighteen minutes from an LP which I was listening to in mid week which really astonished me. I've been saying for years that really about the only person who's survived stardom and continued making interesting music, for me anyway, has been Neil Young, and I was playing his records millions of years ago when I lived in California and worked there, back in Buffalo Springfield days. He's made bad records and records that I've not cared for very much, but nevertheless he seems to be getting better and better and better. What I like about him is that you feel he can hear certain noises in his head that he knows are somewhere in that guitar and by God he's going to get them out of it if it kills him.') &
