A quick look through my old cassettes, and I still have quite a few Peel sessions that I taped at the time. Some good ones:

The Birthday Party
Damned
God Is My Co-pilot

I'd love to actually hear the Peel sessions when they were originally broadcasted.

Hell, just hearing that half of these bands were on the radio gives me a boner. I mean, Lighting Bolt on BBC radio? Wow.

It wasn't just lightening bolt though - it'd be lightening bolt, then some whistling, then some happy hardcore, then some blues etc etc. I've not really found any radio shows to replace it since, 'twas a great loss.

The shows on the BBC radio that try and appear alternative are funny. I tuned into BBC 6 the other day during one of their alternative shows and the first band on were Fleet Foxes...

Mogwai doing 'Helicon 1' stopped the earth.
Also, Mary Anne Hobbs' DJ slot that had them playing records was priceless.

There are surely a few other ones but I can't remember which ones now.

Did you ever hear the MES session? Fucking ridiculously brilliant, if only because Hobbs was bricking it, very audibly.

Yes, I remember that. It was either just before or a few weeks later. Oh the memories of coming back home from the pub and putting the radio on...

Y'know, my becoming a pricky classical music sort is entirely down to the lack of John Peel on the radio? I went over to the Late Junction, and left that as my default station. Shocking.

Those Ivor Cutler sessions should be given to every human on their 11th birthday. If only so they know what 'extirpate' means.

Nico 1974 Peel Session


 


I seem to only do requests these days, and here's another. The first Nico Peel Session was released on Strange Fruit in the late 1980's and was the first time I heard any of her solo stuff. Astonishingly dark with wheezing harmonium and elongated vowels. I probably heard the word "teutonic" for the first time when I saw it reviewed. Or maybe that was a Michael Schenker Group review in Kerrang circa 1984?

Her second session was never released, so here it is. I remember reading on Henry Rollins blog that he wanted to hear a copy so I emailed him but he never replied. I guess he was probably busy lifting weights or frowning.

Three of the tracks came from the 1974 album "The End" but are just performed by just Nico, none of the Eno / Cale mucking about over the top. The 9 minute version of The Doors song is a masterclass in bleakness.

This is for Starman015

1. We've Got The Gold
2. Janitor Of Lunacy
3. The End
4. You Forgot To Answer

Recorded 3rd December 1974

Here

nice find. happy day.
