"The eleven tracks pass by in 15 seconds ... see what you make of this."
(JP before playing Seven Minutes Of Nausea's contributions to 'Bllleeeeaaauuurrrrgghhh! - The Record', 26 May 1991)

A huge grindcore fan, Peel was quick to pick up on the first EP in the Bllleeeeaaauuurrrrgghhh! series and played multiple tracks from all three of the records. As noted by Peel show book author David Cavanagh, the first compilation was an ideal fit for the “Uproar Break” mid-programme feature the DJ introduced in 1991 for refreshing blasts of grindcore and death metal.[1]

The DJ was no doubt attracted by the extreme brevity of the tracks deployed on the EPs, which wasn't unusual for such music, and seemed to take particular delight in anouncing the series title on air. The long list of bands featured on the records included session artists such as Agathocles, Extreme Noise Terror, Melt-Banana and Melvins.

Peel also played many other Slap A Ham releases.[1]
