  • Start of show: "They took 20 seconds out of this programme, you know. I'm not forgiving about that sort of thing. Tonight we're down at the Maida Vale studios with L'augmentation and Woodbine who'll be playing for you later on, and the Peelenium reaches 1976, the year our William was born." The latter fact prompts a temporary title change by the Pig to the 'Willenium'.
  • During the outro to the Peelenium: "In September, a punk festival was arranged by Malcolm McLaren at Oxford Street's 100 Club in London. Artists included the Clash and the Sex Pistols. I went along to it, didn't see the Clash, didn't see the Sex Pistols, but that seemed to me to be punk, really." [1]


  • L'augmentation, one and only session. Live from Maida Vale 3. No known commercial release.
  • Woodbine, #2. Live from Maida Vale 3. No known commercial release.


(JP: 'Meaningless but "gear" as we used to say. Well, I never did, I have to be honest with you....And here's a record from decades earlier on a similar theme.')
(JP: 'The drummer in the Barbarians had only one arm, if I remember correctly, but I've checked. We had a bit of an inspection and all of the percussionists in tonight's programme have a full complement of limbs.')
(JP: 'Well, I tell you what, if I was a record company, I'd have that out as a single before sun-up.')

  1. It was a two-day festival (20-21 September) and, since both bands (along with Subway Sect and Siouxsie & The Banshees) played on the first, John must have gone to the second (when he would have seen the Damned).
