Tracklisting

  • Intro with an excerpt of Peel's voice from Fideo 9
(JP: 'Why are you interested in Welsh music? Can you fully appreciate it as you don't understand the words, well I'm interested in music from all kinds of different places.. I play Russian records, German records, and Japanese records. I don't understand the words of those either. In fact, I don't understand a lot of the English records that I play... Thank you, I think your show is brilliant and I listen to it every night. Oh come on!')

  • Excerpt of Peel's voice from Fideo 9:
(JP: 'You say Welsh pop music is more interesting than a decade ago, why is this? Well I think there is more of it actually or if there isn't more of it, well I'm certainly hearing more of it. I suppose it's, largely the result of activities of Rhys from Anhrefn records who came down and did some very good evangelical work on behalf of Welsh music and made sure too, that other bands that were making records not associated with his own label, also sent me their work and things, so mainly it's his responsibility.')
