Peel enjoying bathtime, apparently
First up, and what better way to get things swinging than with a track from the glorious days of rampant sampling, we have Eric B and Rakim’s ‘I know you got soul’ as it appeared in the 1987 Festive 50. This if followed by ‘My circuitboard city’ by The Wombats, Micachu’s ‘Golden phone’ which you’ll either love or hate and Mando Diao with the track ‘Give Me Fire'. Blatant cutting and pasting next with Davy H's ruff roots reggae mix, stolen directly from his exquisite blog and deposited here for your delight. We have Jackie Edwards with 'Invasion', Jackie Edwards with 'Invasion' again, Culture’s 'Natty Dread Takin' Over' and finally Eek A Mouse with 'Heroes Dead and Gone'.
Peel sessions featured this time round are Freddy Fresh's session from November, 2003, for which I have Steve to thank. There’s also the culmination of the White Stripes' 2001 Maidas Vale session, the first half of which featured in the last podcast, as did New Order’s first session, the the second Peel Session from 1982 appearing this time round with the tracks ‘Turn the heater on’, ‘We all stand’, ‘Too late’ and ‘5-8-6’.
This podcast also features Empire of the sun's ‘Walking on a Dream’, the 1990s track ‘Vondelpark’, Mute Math’s ‘Spotlight’, The Bravery with ‘Believe (Moon version)’, The Job with ‘Killer’ and Blue October’s ‘Dirt room’.
