Reading Festival Review - back cover, 3rd September 1994

1994 and another Reading Festival review. Note the Court in the Act column on page 33 as a source of great embarrassment to ET, oh and can someone answer Andrew Mueller’s question/mistaken caption (page 35) “Who the f*** is this?” even if it is 14 years too late. Come on…one of you must have slept with her.

Writers: Everett True, Andrew Mueller, Cathi Unsworth, Caitlin Moran, Sarra Manning, Dave Jennings, Dave Simpson, Ian Watson

Photographers: Tom Sheehan, Steve Gullick,Stephen Sweet, Matt Bright

Those who also turned up to get drunk: Allan Jones, Sharon O’ Connell, Simon Price

If you’ve been paying attention at the back you’ll know this one’s for Alex. Why not follow her on Twitter @loopingtheloop – she has a lovely turn of phrase – which, given she’s a journalist is probably to be expected.

Head like a cold…black as your bathroom mold…

Talk Talk Talk featuring Mr. Agreeable, 18th March 1995.

Oblivion, open thy jaws, here comes another f***ing sprat!

Unrelated to this post but great finds from the del.ic.ious account of http://www.diskant.net/ who also added this blog.

A selection of full and partial recordings of John Peel’s BBC radio show from 2002 and 2003. Recorded direct to PC from digital radio, so in most cases the quality is reasonably good.

Extensive blog sourcing archived John Peel radio shows

Great post of rare MBV material including a 4 track Peel session from 1988

John Peel Hitlist NME 22nd October 1988

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)

The Siddeleys: Sunshine Thuggery

Dat Blygu: Ugain I Un (can’t find Wyau)

Mighty Force: Thrashing A Dead Horse

Robert Lloyd: Nothing Matters

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.
