Future Sound Of London live session

  • (JP: 'Can you hear me, Garry (Cobains)? There's an amazing delay actually on our voices.')
    (GC: 'Yeah, hi John.')
    (JP: 'Very strange. Spooky.')
    (GC: 'Are you there, John? John Peel? Speak to me.')
    (JP: 'I think you've started. Without me.')
    (GC: 'Speak to me, John. Speak.')
    (JP: 'It's all on tape, by the way, listeners. They're in a back room watching television.')
    (GC: 'John? I can't hear you, John. Is there a question? Are you nervous about the tribal gathering, John?')
    (JP: 'Certainly am.')
    (GC: 'What are you going to play?')
    (JP: 'Down Down by Status Quo?')
    (GC laughs.')

  • The Shining Path
  • Trying To Make Impermanent Things Permanent

(GC: 'Are you going back to Peel Mansions (sic) now?')
(JP: 'In about twenty minutes.')
(GC: 'Are you looking forward to that?')
(JP: 'Very much indeed. Not been home for three days. Not a city boy. You could go on doing this all night, couldn't you?')
(GC: 'Good night.')
(JP: 'Good night. Future Sound of London, live from their own studio. Extraordinary. What is it? Is it a session? I don't know, but wonderful and well worth doing again at some stage. I was wrong in one sense, in that in ten, fifteen years' time, people won't be making records at all: they'll be doing something like that.')
