For one night only, the Peelenium turns into the “Pigellium” to mark 1948, the year The Voice entered the world. Peel himself appears to use the term “Pigenium.”
Something of a Supergrass special, similar in style to other early Peel Acres shows in that it was assembled after the actual visit of the band, who get a guided tour, choose a selection of records, and play live in the garden.
Peel retells a few old stories for his guests, including how he was once billed above Hendrix at a gig at a university (Southampton, he thinks). Says he has another poster on which he is billed above Pink Floyd.
Also recalls that Steve Jones once tried to pick a fight with him in a pizza house.
Claims that the one time he went to Japan he immediately felt at home, more than he would have done somewhere like Leicester.
Remembers Spaceman 3 reacting badly to having their b-side cut short.
Says he saw the Primitives with Echo & The Bunnymen in Birmingham.
Supergrass #3 live at Peel Acres, recorded 1999-07-23. Four tracks appear on the bonus "Mary Live" EP released with the Australian version of the band's eponymous third album. Tracks also available on various CD versions of the Mary single.
