Luke Vibert

Luke Vibert (born 26 January 1973) is a British electronic musician and producer, best known for his work under several aliases such as Amen Andrews and Wagon Christ. Raised in Cornwall, Vibert began releasing projects in the 1990s across varied genres, including techno, drum 'n' bass, and trip hop. He has recorded on labels such as Rephlex, Ninja Tune, Planet Mu, and Warp. Vibert's first musical output was in a variety of bands, including a punk act called Five Minute Fashion and later a Beastie Boys-esque group called the Hate Brothers, but he quickly moved into the low-cost environment of solo electronic composition.

Peel started playing Luke's music in the mid 90's and would continue play tracks released under the musician's real name and aliases such as Wagon Christ and Amen Andrews.

In the late 90's, Peel went to Cornwall to interview Luke Vibert along with the Aphex Twin for Sounds Of The Suburbs: Cornwall, when Vibert told John that he used to work in a record shop and that his shows inspired him to make music.

Peel chose an EP by Luke Vibert under a pseudonym, Amen Andrews Vol 5, among the monthly recommendations in September 2003 (Peel's Record Box).

W is for..

W is for... Wagon Christ

In 2012, the Wagon Christ LP "Phat Lab. Nightmare" was among the first 100 records by artists beginning with W when details of Peel's record collection were first released online.[1] In a related John Peel Archive video, "W is for... Wagon Christ", Luke Vibert recalled phoning Peel at the BBC from an early age, describing him as a surrogate father, the DJ's subsequent support for his early releases, and not managing to do a Peel session until as late as 1998. In the introduction, Sheila Ravenscroft describes Vibert and Wagon Christ as Peel's big introduction to dance music in the 1990s.
