Apologies for the lack of posts over the last few days, there have been other, non-blog related matters to attend to.
Anyway, here are ten more tracks from John Peel’s Festive Fifty. As my bandwith has been exceeded on two Fileden accounts (glad people are enjoying sampling the music which I hope they will buy, but it would be nice if a few more of you left comments) these are via Mediafire.
Eggs -‘Government Administrator.’ mp3 (1993 Festive Fifty no.10)
New Order -‘Fine Time.’ mp3 (1988 Festive Fifty no.44)
The Flatmates -‘I Could Be In Heaven.’ mp3 (1986 Festive Fifty no.42)
Cocteau Twins -‘Pearly Dewdrops’ Drops.’ mp3 (1984 Festive Fifty no.2)
McCarthy -‘Should the Bible Be Banned?’ mp3 (1988 Festive Fifty no.38)
Sleeper -‘Delicious.’ mp3 (1994 Festive fifty no.20)
Camera Obscura -‘Eighties Fan.’ mp3 (2001 Festive Fifty no.8)
Pastels -‘Truck Train Tractor.’ mp3 (1986 Festive fifty no.23)

Whilst here, I should mention that Teenage Kicks, a John Peel-related blog that is so essential I check it every day has done a couple of excellent posts (as usual but even more essential) relating to the Men That Couldn’t Hang and also folk music from 1977. Yes, 1977 the year of punk. Go check them out here.
