• 1992-10-24
  • A four-hour show, due to the clocks going back. Show now complete (minus gaps due to tape flips). Selected tracks are available in higher quality on DW Tape 30 and DW Tape 31
  • Having returned from a trip to Europe, where shows were broadcast from Berlin and Budapest, Peel has a mountain of mail to wade through.
  • Peel reveals that he has been the "innocent victim" of a writing campaign by friends of a band called Sons Of Selina, urging him to play their single Anxiety. Although he has a copy in the backlog of mail, he has yet to listen to it.


  • Sebadoh, #1 (rpt). Recorded 1992-08-09. No known commercial release.
  • Strangelove, #1 (rpt). Recorded 1992-06-30. No known commercial release.
  • John states that it is the above two bands that are in session, not what might have been announced earlier in the day, and he thinks that's his fault. The error has ultimately found its way into Ken's book - which states that Pavement are also in session.

(JP: 'I see The Mix and Hit The North are going to be removed from our schedules in about six months' time. There are few enough good programmes without losing the ones that we have. This is the Fall.')
  • Fall: 'Hit The North (12")' (Beggars Banquet)
(JP: 'As good a radio show as there is – Hit The North I am talking about.')
  • Michael Rose: 'Monkey Business (7")' (Taxi)
  • Strangelove: 'Hopeful' (Peel Session)
  • (Terrible day story – injured back playing tennis, taking 40 mins to go to the toilet and someone turned the hot water off during the pre-show shower.)
  • Corki Ray & Audiofaze: 'Whirlwind (7" EP-Girls In The Garage Volume 6 1/2)' (Romulan)
  • Dooms Day Machine: 'Disarranged (12"-Shadows Of Shadows Passing)' (80 Aum) (audio quality dramatically improves during this)
  • (One of the things that he picked up in Europe – a faintly depressing trip – as was revealed in reports back to Radio 1 – then tells a story about driving back and getting diverted off the autobahn and being guided through the German countryside by a friendly local – questions if that sort of thing would happen in “dear old blighty”.)
  • Loveblobs: 'Peanuts (12"-Extraction)' (Wiiija)
  • CNN: 'Young, Stupid & White (12")' (Transglobal) [1]
  • Pavement: 'Shoot The Singer (1 Sick Verse) (12"-Watery Domestic)' (Big Cat UK)
(JP: 'That’s Pavement from a forthcoming 12 inch. I’ve seen a title for it somewhere, but I can’t remember what it was and it’s not written on the copy that I have so make up your own title – that track was called Frontwards though.') Next week John corrects this to Texas Never Whispers. That wasn't the correct track either
  • Sebadoh: 'Close Enuff' (Peel Session)

(JP: 'They're one of those bands who I suspect in a couple of years time will be coming over here and recording a Mark Goodier session, but not having time to do one for us, said he bitterly.') [2]
(JP: 'Don't forget, in nine minutes' time, when it becomes two o'clock, it remains two o'clock for an hour. I suppose you could say it goes back to one o'clock, but that's not nearly as exciting, so we'll just pretend it remains two o'clock, and it means that I've got an extra hour of the programme, so for those of you who have switched on your radios in the hope of hearing Lynn Parsons in nine minutes' time, sorry! An hour and nine minutes it is for you.')

  1. Tim Bricheno (ex-All About Eve/Sisters of Mercy) founded CNN in 1993 after leaving the Sisters. They released two singles, mixing indie rock sounds with lots of (usually unauthorised) samples and industrial/techno elements, and stirred up some controversy in the UK media press (in particular with the ad campaign for 'Young, Stupid And White'), before the television network threatened to sue them and they were rechristened XC-NN. They gradually disappeared into obscurity after that, finally splitting in '97.
  2. In fact, the band came over to Europe for a tour in early 1994 and found time to record a Peel Session (recorded 1994-01-29, first broadcast 26 February 1994).
