"My Old Peel Tapes ... Again!" (Pts. 11 & 12)

Evening friends,

quite a while since the last installment of any of my old Peel Tapes, right? And because it' so long ago, I thought I don't give you one today, no, I'll give you two! See what a noble chap I am? Unbelievable, ey?

We'll have one from late 1984 today (probably early 1985 because of the inclusion of the Killing Joke track, then again this might have been a DJ pre-release, who knows), a real blast if you ask me, plus - for the more contemporary minded amongst you - one from 1988, very fine stuff in that as well. I have no doubt you'll enjoy both of them!

Peel 003:

The Kick - 'Let's Get Back Together'
Cabaret Voltaire - 'James Brown' (12" version)
Stark Raving Mad - 'Chaos'
Fall - 'Fiery Jack'
Government Issue - 'Insomnia'
Les Calamit├ęs - 'Le Garcon De New York'
Beatitudes - 'Surfing Psychos'
Crippled Pilgrims - 'Black And White'
Killing Joke - 'Love Like Blood'
Triffids - 'Plaything'
Yard Trauma - 'No Conclusions'

Peel 092:

Fall - 'Big New Prinz'
Acid Angels - 'Speed Speed Ecstasy'
Prayers - 'Sister Goodbye'
Happy Mondays - 'Wrote For Luck'
Sonic Youth - 'Candle'
Pacific - 'Barnoon Hill'
Half Japanese - 'I'll Change My Style'
Inspiral Carpets - 'Butterfly'
Old Lady Drivers - 'Die In Your Beauty Sleep'
Blake Babies - 'Her'
Shadowy Men On A Shadowy Planet - 'Aunt's Invasion'
Fall - 'Wrong Place, Right Time'
Last Party - 'Damp'

Also, as usual, you'll get both of them mixed together all by myself in a rather unprofessional fashion, Peel 003 is here whereas Peel 092 is here.

Links to the separate mp3's are above in the tracklist.

Also, I think I haven't mentioned this for quite a while, you can of course find both tapes - but with Peel's introductions and usual bragging along - in the wonderful John Peel Wiki (thanks again, Steve, for taking so much care of my tapes and putting them all up: another 251 tapes and you're finished, mate ... high time you come up with a fresh one, right?).

Hope some of this stuff brings back good memories to you!

Take good care,

Some real gems here, Dirk, especially looking forward to Triffids and Shadowy Men. As usual, fair amount of bands I have never heard too. Peel forever!

It is still good to listen to these old Peel tapes. And you are right - it brought back some good memories while listening to this songs. And there are some gems I didn't knew before like Shadowy Men On A Shadowy Planet or Acid Angels. Thank you Dirk
