Wooft! The Undertones in '78 could sneak into your list with a wee extension

The difficulty with this topic is that there were so many good Peel sessions...

Mid 80's - Ivor Cutler, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

Mid 90's - Orbital, Autechre, Arab Strap

fudge - I never knew that. Loved Siouxsie and the Banshees' late 80s stuff (when presumably he wasn't playing with them).

I've no idea how he did it. The Bauhaus set in particular just sounds incredible.

I thought this was pretty well known. He played with them a couple of times, when John McKay and Kenny Morris quit mid-tour in 79 (The Cure were the support) and later in the 80s after John McGeoch left.

For anybody who doesn't know about it, a huge list of Peel sessions.

True story. Was driving down the coast several years ago, listening to late nite local radio.

Siouxsie song comes on..(Dear Prudence probably).

Afterwards the DJ (clearly someone local) was like, “Um yeah, that was errrr.. Swixie Swix?....must be a Japanese band”.

Oh my, how we larfed.

Brilliant DJ bringing new music, including Pink Floyd, not sure what became of them.

Was looking through those Peel sessions listing and Anaal Nathrakh stuck out like a rather sore thumb.

It’s half-time at the footy and it occurred to me I hadn’t thanked Bindi for posting the list.

Thanks :thumbup:

I listened to the Cure clip and had a quick squiz at the comments while doing so; usually a mistake but this time it evinced a larf. Someone noted how they used to listen to the Cure lights-out and I’d been remembering that the first time I heard the Cure, other than on the old 4ZZZ, was at a party in 1980. With no lights on other than a dim red pilot bulb.

1980. Forty. Fecking. Years. Ago. That seems unfair and unfeasible.

On mature reflection, everybody and everything can go and get fúcked.

I had a similar moment yesterday - played my first game of league in 8 years and pre-game I was wearing the team wind-breaker I got the first year I played senior league. When I took it off, I realised my jacket was older than half my team-mates. :blush:

Spent 83-84 in London and always enjoyed the Peel Sessions. Peak radio.

I've gone down a giant rabbit hole a nostalgic orgy of post punk/new wave and new romantics. I haven't got to dark wave or gothic yet. (The terms I remember from the times were new wave, alt and new romantics)
