JP: "Happy New Year"
(JP: "This is part of one of my Christmas presents, for which I was extremely grateful - the soundtrack to "O Brother, Where Art Thou".")
(JP: "And we got the film as well.")
(JP: "I was sent actually toward the end of last year a new record by Neko Case ... and I have to admit that I was disappointed with it. Because her previous one was #1 in last year's Festive Fifty and was terrific and it was kind of country stuff, and she had reverted more to the kind of singer-songwriter things, which were perfectly acceptable but not as dramatic or as exciting or just as plain good as the country things she was doing. So perhaps she will go back to the country in 2002. Let's hope so.")
(JP: "El Hombre Trajaedo. I love saying that for some reason... cos I'm a twerp probably.")

  • Negatives: 'We're From Bradford' (LP 'Bored Teenagers Vol. 2 (16 Great British Punk Originals 1977-1982)') Bin Liner
(JP: "An anthem I'd say and why it wasn't released at the time it was recorded I shall never understand.")
