Ruptures Radio Show // JOHN PEEL Tribute // 2004

Ruptures ‘John Peel Tribute’ (6+13 December 2004)

Some days after the untimely passing of renowned BBC Dj and musical mastermind John Peel, my friend and colleague Roger Rahal and myself joined forces to put together and co-host a series of radio programs dedicated to the great man, a personal icon and reference of ours (and to countless others, I’m sure).

Included in the track listing of these shows were some of the bands and artists Peely discovered, with interpretations of tracks taken from his infamous ‘Peel Sessions’, recorded in the BBC Studios in Maida Vale, London. Our personal way of thanking the great man for years and years of fantastic musical discoveries!

Track listing (December 6):
The Damned
Siouxsie & The Banshees
The Cure
Gang Of Four
The Ruts
Stiff Little Fingers
Joy Division
Au Pairs

  1. Really thoughtful, kind as much to consider a tribute to John Peel – I would contribute to the list – Autumn by Xmal Deutschland – the Cocteau Twins session of 1983 – even Cat Power. He was the real dedicated man, accompanied three generations at least.
