Tracklisting

15 July 1989

(JP: 'The response to the (?) two-hour edition of John Peel's Music On BFBS, I think, can best be described as muted so far, in fact (slaps postcard on desk) that's it. But doubtless there's more mail in the post: that was a postcard, and rather a nice one as well, but doubtless there's more. Perhaps you're on manoeuvres, or something like that. There must be an excuse for it.')
(JP: '(This is) from Stella Chiweshe....and it says on the front of the sleeve, "The Mbira queen of Zimbabwe meets John Peel." In fact, we've never actually met, but there is something in the notes to this song which makes me believe that this is perhaps the reference to me. It's a song called Kachembere, and it says, "This is an old favourite story about an old bullfrog which was always seen early in the mornings searching for food with its children. After having enough of it, it would climb into the mountains, lazily yawning, scratching and breaking wind." Well, that does sound a little like me, I have to admit.')
(JP: 'I was wondering the other day, whatever became of Marc Riley? I phoned somebody in Manchester to find out, but to be perfectly honest with you, I've forgotten the answer. But here he is with the Creepers.')
(JP: 'It'd be a sad thing if he's turned his back on showbiz. Mind you, I don't blame him if he has.')
