Comments
  • Two played from the 'East Of Croydon' compilation.
  • 'Release The Bats' by the Birthday Party is declared the best single of the year. It would later be chosen by Peel for the 1981 Peelenium.
  • Ken Garner's Peel Sessions gives the first play of the Method Actors' session as 1981-07-22 in the artist session (presumably a typo), although he gives this date in the show section (with the Skodas repeat).

  • Method Actors #1 First broadcast. Recorded 1981-07-18. No known commercial release.
  • Skodas #1 Repeat. First broadcast 30 June 1981. Recorded 1981-05-24. No known commercial release.

Tracklisting

(JP: "This is the single of the year. I played it on last night's programme right at the beginning and I defy you to nominate one which is better than this anyway.")

(tape flip)

(JP relates meeting Joe Strummer of the Clash for the first time. Mid-conversation, Strummer told a friend of his, "Go away, can't you see I'm working?")
