  • Music:

It was twenty years ago today (perhaps)*

Primal Scream's Peel session from January 1986. Titles: Aftermath, I Love You, Crystal Crescent, Subterranean.
*"In Session Tonight" has a date of December 1985, I guess I recorded the re-broadcast. Either way, a fantastic session, and Subterranean -in spite of being the greatest song ever- has yet to be issued officially in any form. I've kept the session in one lump for download; each song is under 2'30", and they're all terrific, so you might as well have 'em all.
This may be the first of a few Peel Session uploads I do. I'm attempting to get an overview on the era, after Bob Stanley announced that he was preparing a "20 years after c86" film/exhibition/series of shows for later this year. I can't believe how good much of the music still sounds. This session pretty much defines 1986 for me. Next (maybe): June Brides 29/1/86...

  • Are "friends" electric?

    Been neglecting this thing for awhile. I wonder why? I guess it's partly because I've recently succumbed to social pressures ha ha & opened a myspace…

  • I'd rather be with you than flying through space.

    Jean Marie Perier is a remarkable photographer, possibly my favourite portrait photographer ever. So when I heard about this exhibition in a gallery…

  • Films, art, music.

    Remember how much we all enjoyed the Bob-curated vintage pop telly season at the Barbican last summer? Well, he's doing another one, this time…
