  • Another in a continuing series from prolific uploader and Peel Mailing List member parkermike81, featuring highlights from Peel's shows of the early 1990s.
  • The band name →↑→ is pronounced 'tsk tsk tsk', which apparently gives JP great amusement. They provided the soundtrack to an Australian film directed by Philip Brophy, which JP hadn't seen but, given the title, thinks it unlikely he ever will. (I wonder if he bothered: I did. Unfortunately.-SIG)
  • As is customary with these compilations, a complete session is included.


  • Bastro, #2. Recorded 1990-07-01. No known commercial release. This appears to be the first broadcast, 23 July 1990.


Part One

(JP: 'I phoned home this afternoon, having been away for a couple of days, and Alexandra, 12, answered the phone, and immediately said, when she recognised my voice, "Not you again! Look, I'm a busy woman, I've a business to run, you know!" I think I'm a figure of fun to them.')
(JP: '(Tomorrow night's programme) starts at 8 o'clock. I frankly have no idea at all why it starts at 8 o'clock. Perhaps the station's run out of Phil Collins records.') 17 July 1990
(JP: (referring to the people mentioned above) 'Of course, what you really want to do when you've got tormentors like that is to go calmly to the boot of the car, get out the chainsaw, (makes tearing sound in throat) chop them up into bite-size chunks and then throw all the bits into a skip full of Dettol, but obviously you don't get a chance to do that.') 23 July 1990
(JP: 'I was just looking at the Beckett's LP sleeve. I've never really paid much attention to it before, it's been on the shelf for some time. Looking at it, I thought it was some kind of avant-garde thing, you know, 'Vortex' or 'Construction Number 17', something like that. Instead of which, I think it's pubic hair. Mind you, when you get to be my age, almost everything looks like pubic hair.')
  • Harmony As One: 'Harmony As One (EP-No Elite)' (Conscious Effort) 23 July 1990
  • S.O.B.: 'Sudden Rise Of Desire (Compilation CD-Don't Be Swindle & Leave Me Alone)' (no label-unofficial release)

Part Two

(JP: 'Already, hundreds, well, tens of thousands of people have written in to say how much they're looking forward to the Fall In August, eight programmes featuring Fall sessions in...the first and second weeks of August.')
