  • It sounds like the taper of the first half of the show has ditched the old autoreverse tape deck, sound quality is very good indeed.
  • Peel plays a Bauhaus oldie from a newly issued v/a compilation. The Smell Of The Greasepaint blog explains: "Mick Mercer’s book, Gothic Rock: All You Ever Wanted to Know....But Were Too Gormless to Ask was released through Cleopatra, with an accompanying compilation album released through Jungle Records. The book pre-dated the album by a few months and Peel made reference to the fact that he had played some records earlier in the year based on bands/artists covered in the book and was now turning his attention to the album."[1] The Bauhaus track "Double Dare" is also covered by session band God Machine later in the show. The Goth book LP returns the following evening with an Xmal Deutschland track.[2]
