Peel played 'Slaughterhouse', from the sole 12" release listed by Discogs under the Funky Ginger name, three times in June 1988. The artist was quickly invited to record what would be his only session, which would be repeated on multiple occasions, including among the best-of-year Festive Fifty Session Broadcasts for 1988.
