• John Peel Show
  • BBC Radio One
  • 1995-02-24
  • John compares the Elastica track favourably to 'Teenage Kicks', and threatens to play it twice in the same night: it would appear from the track listing that he did.
  • Safe Deposit seem to have given Peel a non-existent fax number: nonetheless, he proclaims the record to be 'rather wonderful'.
  • The Conemelt LP's 'unbroadcastable' title is given by JP as 'You Knitters Knit' instead. He subsequently plays a track requested by them, which they describe as 'splendidly pompous'.
  • Show is now complete.


  • Badgewearer, one and only session. Recorded 1995-01-24. No known commercial release.
  • Orb, #4. Recorded 1995-02-14. Available on The Peel Sessions (Strange Fruit).


(JP: 'Travel time with Uncle Andy.')
(JP: 'That's Badgewearer from Glasgow: this show's spiritual home, I sometimes think.')
(JP: 'Slampt Records, label of the year? They get my nomination for sure.')
(JP: 'I've actually given myself a headache in the course of this programme so far, and I don't care.')
(JP (after giving Badgewearer's contact details): 'I hope you have better luck getting in touch with them than we've had getting in touch with these people.')
