(JP: 'Believe me, the original (by Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich-SIG) didn't come within a thousand miles of the wonderfulness of that.')
  • Johnny R: 'The Preacher (12")'
  • Prophecy Of Doom: 'Vortex Dreamer (LP-Matrix)' (Metalcore)
  • (1 a.m. news: this puts the start of file 1 as 11:43PM. This means that around 6 minutes are missing at the start of the show on File b, either before the first listed track (the Fall) or at the audible tape edit.)(The edit comes for the 11:30 news but comes at 26.5 mins into the file. Therefore there must be around 3.5 minutes missing at the start of the file and perhaps 2 mins for the news.) (NB 3.5 minutes at start are probably the first track on File 3)
  • New Fast Automatic Daffodils: 'Stockholm (7 inch)' (Play It Again Sam)
  • Risen From The Ranks: 'Don't Beg For Love (12 inch)' (Synthetic)

(JP: 'Lynn Parsons passed this way a few moments ago, looking absolutely astonishing, I mean good astonishing. I'm not quite sure what she's been up to: the story she told me wasn't entirely convincing.')

  1. JP likes the first half minute of this song so much he immediately plays it again. The single was later found in John Peel's Record Box.
  2. JP notes that the title is open to dispute, and could be 'She's Asleep' or 'It's Snowing'. The Peel Sessions (p. 320) lists it as merely 'Snowing'.
