  • The whole programme was dedicated to Peel's friend Ian The Tank Engine, as it was his birthday. Unusually, it ran from 12 midnight to 3 a.m. due to a Sting concert.
  • Oldest track in the listing is a 1932 blues by Tampa Red and Georgia Tom.
  • The title of the Slime track, "Der Tod ist ein Meister aus Deutschland" (Death Is A Master In - or better, From - Germany), is a line from Paul Celan's famous poem about the Holocaust, "Todesfuge" (usually translated into English as Death Fugue or Fugue of Death). The song's lyrics include a reference to Celan's poem..



(JP: 'This is a search record, and the search continues, despite the fact that the object of the search has been found. I think that's pretty groovy, in a funny way.') (See Little Richard Cover Search.)
(JP: 'I suppose they recorded that because it's mine on Monday week.')
(JP: 'Destined for heavy rotation on the Jakki Brambles programme, no doubt.')
(JP: 'There aren't that many bands who can pull off a Captain Beefheart cover, but I think they do.')
(JP: 'Still just about my favourite LP, even fourteen years on.')

  1. No trace can be found of this mix: it is possible that John has wrongly announced it, as the track is certainly Ultraviolence's 'The Electric Chair.'
