- Mark's record collection Q Magazine article: October, 1990

Smith and friends, circa 1990

After the unbelievable lack of interest in my post on the Peel sessions Q Magazine article, I've decided to go ahead and offer you another from my collection. October, 1990 finds a sprightly, fresh-faced Mark E. in a rare forthcoming moment, sharing one or two secrets about those musicians that have influenced him, including a nod to JP for playing Can.

- Back with a whimper: Podcast 21

I know, you'd gotten used to lovely downloads completely free of any of my wittering. Well, I'm back with a podcast proper after a beer / holiday / procrastination fuelled absence. Those of you in the teaching profession will know only too well how much effort it is to do anything during the summer hols, that's all the explanation I have, I'm afraid.
