Web Roundup Week 8 (Part 1)

Web Roundup Week 8 (Part 1):
Links to some of the web’s finest Peel purveyors.

Every day? A new post every day. Who bleedin’ well told you that? Actually having the news about Martyn’s Peel Tapes book on top for two days is no bad thing at all. He’s since told me that he will indeed be keeping us posted with his progress. Looking forward to it.

The Perfumed Garden has, among it’s usual steady flow of Peel Sessions, The Fall’s gig from Sheffield’s Hallam University back in 1993, part of which was broadcast to mark BBC Radio 1’s Sound City initiative.

Sound of The Suburbs is another site I’ve featured before that regualrly posts Peel Sessions. A John Cooper Clarke session, in particular, caught my eye. Recent posts also feature Pete Wylie, Therapy, Pulp & Period Pains’ ‘Spice Girls (Who Do You Think You Are).

Peter writes to inform me that his site has links to a John Peel session from Medicine Head session – 26th april 1970. He would also like to hear from anyone who has the previous session one i that was “..done before the first lp (new bottles, old medicine) which was recorded in a birmingham studio and was of most of the songs on that lp” I hope I’ve got I’ve all the details correct there.

Koogy’s comprehensive music tracklistings for the SlashMusic podcasts have garnered attention from Mr Tom Ravenscroft himself stating, “I have to admit, it’s a very good site indeed,and I kind of wish we’d done it..”

Finally and certainly by no means least, I extend my thanks and appreciation to Richard for supplying me with the recent Guardian Guide which featured many of yours & my favourite websites including this one. The fact that they reproduced my ever so humble graphc design (not withstanding credit for the photographer of said pic used) without consultation infers I may do the same with their content. Unless of course they think Bloggers don’t warrant the same courtesy not to mention potential legal considerations? Huh, then Jamie went and topped it by being mentioned in Q Magazine, although a little investigative journalism (and a penchant for graphic design) on my part revealed the awful truth Media Whores & Pictures At An Exibition.

Pimpernel Jones:
Pompey DJ and rising star Pimpernel Jones plays the Wedgewood Rooms on Saturday 10th February with Radio One/Talkin’ Loud’s Gilles Peterson. So far I’ve only heard the chilled out mixes that Chris has been kind enough to point me to but judging from that and the favourable comments he’s been receiving lately, it should be a good night. Definately a name to watch!

BBC4’s John Peel Night

This post concludes all the tv & radio media for John Peel that I’m aware of for this week. If you know of more please let me know.

As much as there is on offer this, and last week, it’s by no means any real substitute and I do genuinely have Sheila and the family in mind, and not just at this time because, and I’m sure we all are of the same opinion here: John was very much a part of our own extended family and I like to think we were also part of his.
