10 March 1990 (BFBS)

(JP: 'I sometimes think, you know, that the whole kind of indie area, in as far as it still exists at all, is terribly sexist in a way that is more sexist than the record industry generally, which is sexist enough, but any band that comes along with sort of pale young women with boyish physiques in it always goes down enormously well, and nobody actually coems out and says, "We like this band because we fancy them like mad," but there's pictures and they're in all the music papers. They always make sure that all the promotional material much emphasises this aspect of the band, and I suppose that's showbiz.')

17 March 1990 (BFBS)

(JP: 'The king of 'em all.')
(JP: 'I only met Gene Vincent once: he made a record for a record label I had called Dandelion Records, which was produced by Kim Fowley, who wrote the sleeve notes for the other record from Norfolk, Virginia! It's amazing how these things tie together in some extraordinary way. It cost an immense amount of money, rather more I think than it should have done. A lot of it went to Kim Fowley, to be perfectly honest, but I didn't sell a great number, but I was very pleased. It wasn't a great record, but I was very pleased just to be able to say, of course, I've got a Gene Vincent record on my label....shook hands with him once, and he asked me who I was.')

31 March 1990 (BFBS)

(JP: 'It's time for two hours of good clean fun on BFBS: Tiger Radio, with John Peel's Music. We start in the pit.')
(JP: 'Now something that verges on the ambient.')
