Stuart Maconie gets John Peel’s Hitlist, 22nd October 1988
July 7, 2008
Stuart Maconie hits the nail on the head in his intro, “The Peel Show has brought me moments of Joycean epiphany when pop has shed its scaly skin and changed my life”.
Anyone who listened to Peel even semi regularly has a story about the time they were sat in the kitchen/driving to a party/lying in bed etc. etc. listening to his show when suddenly he played a record that made them feel like they’d been accelerated through space and time whilst being punched senseless. Those very rare moments when music leaves you stupefied, breathless and gasping….”What the fuck is this – this is amazing!”
Inspiral Carpets: Keep the Circle Around (live 2008 performance!)
Wedding Present – Why are you being so reasonable now? (about 3.45 in)
Dat Blygu: Ugain I Un (can’t find Wyau)
A Guy Called Gerald: Voodoo Ray
Dinosaur Jr: Freak Scene
Got nothing on Chinhoyi Superstars after a quick search – if you’re determinded and have more time then maybe you’ll have more luck.
