John Peel

16. september 2006

Det er ikke for meget at sige, at John Peel nærmest har været en institution i engelsk populærmusik. DJ’en, der døde i 2004, og siden 2005 mindes pÃ¥ John Peel Day, har haft en enorm betydning for promoveringen af ny rock- og popmusik fra midten af 1970’erne og frem. Nu markeres dette uvurderlige arbejde, i følge NME, med udgivelsen af en dobbeltcd med smagsprøver pÃ¥ de kunstnere, han havde med at gøre. Titlen pÃ¥ udgivelsen er: “John Peel Right Time, Wrong Speed: 1977-87”. Pladen der i øvrigt fÃ¥r et cover af selveste Sir Peter Blake, der ogsÃ¥ stod bag Beatles’ Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band, har følgende trackliste:
