  • Sabres Of Paradise: 'Stanshall's Lament' (Peel Session)
  • JP: 'I went to a memorial service for Viv (Stanshall) during the week in Soho Square. As you might imagine, it was a melancholy affair, but it did have its moments. For example, it was more religious than I imagined it would be. It never occurred to me that Viv was Catholic, or indeed that he was anything, so it was quite a Catholic event. We were invited in the course of the service to sing four hymns, but were not provided with any hymnbooks, so the chap who was standing alongside me hummed them in a loud and confident manner, but I couldn't do that, and nor could most of the other people. But a nice touch, I felt.'

  • Lee Perry: 'Jungle (7 inch)' (Syncopate)
