  • "I like stupid records, really. I just like things that are unfashionable - so I really like happy hardcore, cos everyone thinks it's incredibly uncool, especially dance people. There was that song, Identify the Beat, by Mark Smith, on Bonkerz records, which was so uncool, and just stupid, but fantastically exciting. It's nice to be able to segue that into a Gene Vincent record or something from my childhood. I quite like the tasteless segue. On the rare occasions when I do gigs, I can't mix, cos you can't mix from drum'n'bass to Duane Eddy. I like it when you get audiences standing there thinking - what the f*** is this? So when you get a room full of people - like I did in Fabric - and you play Status Quo. They think, for God's sake, but then they go for it. Down Down is always good."

    Are these songs related to anything I don't get it.

    If it's just Peel connected songs

    Yeah yeah yeahs - Maps

    Jo Whiley played it as a tribute to him the day after he died. I was in the bath.
    I don't think I'll ever forget it.

    I got that.

    I just wasn't sure if the songs were directly realted to something?

    2004 though? Blimey! :shock:

    From the Guardian site..."John O'Neill from the Undertones here.

    John obviously was the biggest influence on our lives. We never had any delusions of fame or stardom so, that night he played Teenage Kicks twice was simply just incredible and then to continue to play our records and say all those kind things about us was, and still is, such a very humbling experience. We were so lucky to meet up with him again in 2001 to make the documentary about the band. He stayed in Derry for a couple of days and we got to have some quality time with him. A truly wonderful man whose wit, intelligence and humanity is an inspiration to us all.

    One of the best things about his radio show was the eclectic mixture of music he played which you just don’t get anymore. Now everything seems to be pigeonholed into specific styles of one particular type of music. He most definitely would not have approved. Shame on all those DJs on Radio 6 etc. He’s still very badly missed."

    Such happy memories, listening to his show late at night was magical. Feel very lucky to have heard so much great music at such a young age, all thanks to the incomparable Mr John Peel. I even forgave him for being a Liverpool fan!

    +1 for the Wedding Present, first band i saw live.
    I've got two Peel Sessions, Joy Division and New Order but my memory of Peel is me as a teenager listening to the likes of the Wedding Present and Half Man Half Biscuit on his show near on 25 years ago

    Great choice. I'm now going to dig out the LP and listen to the whole album.

    I listen to his old shows all the time and still discover bands I should have been listening to years ago but missed. Really is quite a legacy he has left. Put me onto too many great bands to mention.
