Keeping It Peel 2010: The Shop Assistants, Godspeed, J Mascis and the Fog

A post inspired/reminded by Football and Music and Sweeping The Nation…  and countless other great blogs. This is my contribution to marking John Peel’s passing in 2004 with a Peel Session track is – well, I’ve cheated. I had a few choices, so why not post ’em all?

I Don’t Want To Be Friends With You‘ – Shop Assistants – Peel Session 1986

Hung Over As The Oven In Maiden Vale‘ – Godspeed You Black Emperor! – Peel Session 1998

Everything Flows – Range Life – In A Rut‘ – J Mascis and the Fog (feat. Mike Watt fercryinoutloud) – Peel Session 2003

It hasn’t really been the same since, despite the sterling work of 6music, and I’ve had no end of weird conversations about whether x or y would have been Peel favourites. Anyway. Cheers John.

If you want to join in, here’s your instructions from Football and Music:

If you are a Facebook user post a link to a You Tube video. If you are on Twitter then on October 25th post a tweet using the hashtag: #keepingitpeel and add a song/video clip, again from a Peel session.

If you ever taped a show, listened in bed on headphones, or thought “what the hell was that?”, get stuck in.

  1. Good one.

  2. So many Peel Session songs I’m discovering.
    Didn’t think there’d be so many people posting.
    Thank you so much for taking part.
