Keeping it Peel

Keeping it Peel is a sort of John Peel Day, but with this one it isn’t about artists who performed – it’s for those who listened…

Celebrating the great man, and the joy he brought us all, on the anniversary of his death, the 25th October, the Record Club joined in with our October Record Club event.

Regular @LyndonMarquis was in charge for the night, and he picked two albums, that left us with plenty of room to bring along our favourite tracks/records to go in the gaps.

He’s also set up a vote for a third album to beplayed in full, which was won by XTC’s Black Sea.

Picked by popular choice for the Keeping it Peel event, XTC’s Black Sea was well received. XTC had been championed over the years by John. In fact over a third of his ‘X’ collection of records were by XTC. See X is for XCT in John Peel’s Record Collection.

Songs of Praise

Songs of Praise - African Head Charge

Described on the On U Sound website as:

“AHC’s meisterwerk – the 1990 peerless “Songs of Praise” (ON-U LP 50) – a set so complete in its realisation that it provided a peak that the band could not scale again”

The Peel Sessions

The Peel Sessions - Stiff Little Fingers
Artist:

Stiff Little Fingers

Year:

1989

Kicking off our Keeping it Peel night, why not start with a Peel Session. Stiff Little Fingers were certainly one of John’s favourite bands, so why not re-discover hem with us.
