• John Peel Show
  • BBC Radio One
  • 1990-08-08
  • The third instalment in the Fall In August series, eight pre-recorded shows featuring repeated Fall sessions.
  • Start of show: "And the beat goes on. How many times have braindead DJs started a programme by saying that? The Fall In August continues with a session from 1981, and scratchy old vinyl from New Order, Shambeko Say Wah!, Bootsy Collins, Echo & The Bunnymen, Gregory Isaacs, Sonic Youth, the Cocteaus, the Nightingales, and..."



(JP: 'Of course, back in those days, 10p would buy you a cottage for two in the Home Counties anyway.')
(JP: 'There were those who wrote to me at the time saying, "The only reason you like that is because it sounds like Clare Grogan singing in German", which is a very cynical attitude to take.')
  • Fall: 'Deer Park' (Peel Session)
  • Fall: 'Look, Know' (Peel Session)
  • Fall: 'Winter' (Peel Session)
  • Fall: 'Who Makes The Nazis?' (Peel Session)
(JP: 'Never did understand that, but who wants to understand things anyway?')
(JP: 'One of the many nice things about doing programmes like this is that you find records which you know you've played 'cos the lists tell you so, but you can't remember them at all, and that's a case in point, and rather good it is too.')
