Date:
Sunday October 12th
Venue:
Catch 22, Shoreditch, London. 5PM-12.00
Details:
This is a celebration of the wonderful work and life of John Peel, the greatest DJ there ever will be. Tickets are £6.00 via This special gig will be an all-dayer and will have John Peel shows played throughout and his favourite tracks played at the nights end in a John Peel Wingding disco!

P.W. Long (Wig/Mule/Reelfoot) genuine legend (Southern) ‘P. W.’s music has always come from the heart, and on Remembered, the blood pours. The lyrics resonate with the voice of someone who knows he’s made mistakes, but underneath it all, there’s a faint hope of redemption.’ (wikipedia entry).

Joanne Robertson: She plays drums, writes songs, plays guitar, sings and has supported Franz Ferdinand and is soon to gig with Howe Gelb. Her debut album came out on Textile which is home to Jackie O’ Motherfucker/Telescopes.

M.J. Hibbitt: king of Optimistic Pop and Steve Lamaq/Radio6/XFM favourite who had 3 million downloads of his recent smash hit Hey Hey 16K and had a sell out run at the Edinburgh festival with his ‘my exciting life is show business’ show.

Dredlunadare: A John Peel day would not be complete without a super loud and scary act so we have these Barking based shellac’ish noizeniks who stir up a crazed angular ruckus which is several orders of magnitude more interesting than many of the Math Rock clone acts currently hogging London stages. Lower Slaughter North London’s Arty answer to Sonic Youth. Expect Pomo NoWave Postskackerism from this Alt 3 piece who explode with beautiful noise invention. The band features the more attractive members of Huw Stephens favourites ‘fantaplastic’ and ‘smallgang’ and sound like Robert Wyatt crossed with the Swirlies.

Russ and the wolf Choir: Romford’s only poet who sits snugly in-between Jason Molina/Geoff Farina and Kevin Devine and deals in the lovelorn lullabies for the lonely, loveless or just a bit heartbroken.

Former Utopia Possibly: The only indigenous cockney still remaining in East London and an iconoclastic genre hopping intellectual sombre song smith. As down to earth and utopian as Billy Bragg, as haunted as Bill Callahan, as prolific as The Mountain Goats and on occasion as furious as Shellac. He has the manic obsessive inventiveness of an atheist Daniel Johnston but balanced with the insight and height of George Orwell. ‘Smog on holiday in shellac’ DIS

JOHN PEEL DAY IN MILAN, ITALY
It’s been four years since John Peel departure, so we we’d like to celebrate this massively influential figure of our time. In the last 3 years we organized dj sets, podcasts & radio shows to remember our teacher as he’d wish: playing and staying together. This time we decided to play in one of the settings John Peel liked the most: the bar, with the “one dish” technique.

“Unpiattosolo* Guerilla Style– Special John Peel Day 2008”
Starring : Francesco Roccaforte (Unpiattosolo – Radio 2), Luca de Gennaro (Whatever – Radio Capital), Fabio De Luca (Weekendance.com) Stefano By Night (Punto Radio – Roma – 1970’s and 80’s), Luca Scotto di Carlo (Metal LSD), Bartenders Frog & Andrea.

Italiano:
RICORDANDO JOHN PEEL

Domani, 24 ott. a Milano, un bar e 5 Djs per onorare il mitico speaker. Il 25 ottobre 2004 si spegneva prematuramente una delle voci radiofoniche più influenti della storia dell’ umanità.

John Peel, il leggendario d.j. di BBC Radio One, che per più di 30 anni attraverso il suo “John Peel Show” e le storiche “John Peel Sessions” ha contribuito più di chiunque altro a divulgare il verbo della musica di qualità, educando le orecchie e i gusti di intere generazioni, ogni anno viene ricordato in tutto il mondo nell’anniversario della sua scomparsa.

Anche in Italia, da 4 anni, si organizzano, in occasione dell’anniversario dj set, jam sessions, podcasts e programmi radiofonici per ricordare il maestro come lui avrebbe voluto: suonando e stando insieme. Quest’anno aggiungiamo agli studi radiofonici e ai club un altro tra i luoghi più congeniali per John Peel: il bar, e soprattutto uno dei suoi oggetti preferiti: Il giradischi.

Venerdì 24 ottobre:
“Unpiattosolo – Speciale John Peel Day 2008″

Dj set con un solo giradischi e vinile originale, nell’intima cornice del Pravda Vodka Bar di Via Vittadini 6, Milano. A partire dalle 20 e finchè si chiude la saracinesca.

Djs: Francesco Roccaforte, Luca de Gennaro, Fabio De Luca, Stefano By Night, L.S.D., (5 djs, 1 piatto solo)

Sill no official word as yet from the BBC Radio 1 website concerning John Peel Day 2008, but that won’t prevent us from pushing on regardless.

If you have a gig coming up that forms part of John Peel Day and want some free publicity, email me with the details and links and I’ll add them to this post. Keep it Peel!

↓ Other News

• Update: 21:43 2008 September 18th
“John Peel Night will debut in the legendary DJ’s spiritual hometown of Liverpool, featuring punk electronica outfit 2 Hot 2 Sweat, experimental grime producer Milanese and Sheffield-based quintet Rolo Tomassi.”

• Update: 07:09 2008 September 18th
The Electric Proms 2008 from the BBC, runs from 22nd to 26th October, and this year’s event has added value folks. It’s to be staged in London, oh yes as usual, but also for the first time, in Liverpool. Bearing in mind Liverpool’s status this year as European Capital of Culture, I think we can expect big things for John Peel Day 2008 don’t you? Why are you making that face? Oh look at you, you’re so cynical. I’ve despatched emails to each relevant press office, so we should have some news shortly. Jolly good.

    Did you make that banner? It’s really cool.

  2. 2008/09/15 at 15:00

    Cheers Adam, yes I did :) The right hand side is the logo from the Radio 1 site obviously, I just updated it with the speaker and date motif. Feel free to use it if you want.

    Sorry you had to await comment approval by the way. You should have pre-approved status. I’ll have to look into that!
