On my show this month:
A show that begins and ends a tad nostalgically - with that traditional Peel Back... dollop of nostalgia in the middle - concentrates for the remainder of the show on new and future releases. In that spirit we present something from the new EPs from Kloba Kent and Bloomin' Nora and new albums from Ippu Mitsui, Nac/Hut Report and Antony Harding. We've also got previews from forthcoming collections from JD Meatyard and Jan Strach while also playing something from what will sadly be the last release from The Fucked Up Beat.
If your ears need a bit of a clearing out, there's plenty of noisy stuff in the three hours, including demos from Big Heet and Suzi Q, something from France's Stratocasters and Canada's Soupcans and five tracks from our featured compilation - the Abort Abort 2 cassette featuring bands from Eastern Europe which, you'll be both intrigued and dismayed to hear, is practically impossible to get hold of.
Fortunately, you can get easily get your hands on the marvellous Pop Makossa compilation of late seventies/early eighties Cameroon dance music, so we throw in a couple of tracks from that as well. As has become customary in recent months, we've also got something wonderful from Sir Robert Orange Peel and Paul Rooney, plus something from the equally wonderful Cuban Boys, though in somewhat unfamiliar guise ...

Biography:
My music-related activities over the years have been restricted to such peripheral activities as running a venue and attempting to manage a band to putting together radio shows variously named The A-Z of Punk, Idiot Jukebox and The Diamond Mine as well as masquerading as The Phantom Surfer to produce The History of Surf Music and unintentionally controversial hour-long documentary Surfin' East Kilbride, all of which have made appearances on various community radio stations over the years.

I'm the author of a book on John Peel's Festive Fifty called, with great imagination, The Festive Fifty. I edited a fanzine called The Backdoor in the late eighties, fronted a band called The Beached Whales that never got round to gigging and played amplifier lead and slides with a band who'd rather I didn't make my association with them public. I have what I believe is a healthy contempt for music journalism (even when it's good) and believe the best way to start a band is to put four people who can't play in a room with some second hand instruments, don't feed 'em and don't let them out until they've produced something great. I've tried it on several occasions and no one's died yet.
