Peel was generally a fan of Dinosaur Jr. and followed J Mascis's music when he initially disbanded the band in 1998 and formed the J Mascis + The Fog group. During their first European tour in 2000, J Mascis + The Fog participated in a John Peel session for BBC Radio 1, during which the band recorded a medley consisting of Teenage Fanclub's "Everything Flows", Pavement's "Range Life", and The Ruts' "In a Rut", that was broadcast on 19 December 2000, to celebrate 25 years of the Festive Fifty.
