Another in Mark's continuing series of Peel compilations.
He notes: "Session 5/12/83 with Marc (Michael) Riley on drums! The great Helen McCookerybook’s follow up to The Chefs – another typically great Peel band that transcend time. He always found great people to promote. She is on MySpace and you can buy vinyl! You have probably spotted by now I shared Peel’s passion for British Reggae. Chevalier Brothers – another band I saw at the (Oxford) Poly – and yes I had a zoot suit for a bit!"
(JP: 'I was confirmed by the Bishop Of Lichfield...Very disappointing actually for me, confirmation, because I genuinely at the time expected that there was going to be an actual physical transformation at the time when the Bishop laid his hands rather reluctantly on my head. I thought that I would suddenly perceive things which I hadn't perceived before, principally of a sexual nature, I have to admit. I won't go into details of course, but it was a great disappointment. Most of my school chums who got confirmed with me were given things like Italian sports cars and grouse moors in Scotland. And I was given a five shilling postal order by my godmother. The whole thing was a grievous disappointment to me.')
