bins, the show, James Yorkston

Blood Red Shoes session last night was great - the show went very quickly. Its
the same each week- I gear myself up for a week for the show all week, listening
to everything and getting hyped up, then BANG! it's over and I'm back in the
holiday inn watching the Mint and not being able to sleep.
Thanks to all of ya'll who got in touch last night with suggestions of covers
for the special we're doing on the show in two weeks, and please do keep em
coming. The Wedding Present are doing a session of covers for the show, and
every other tune is going to be a cover. Should be fun.
On the train back from London today I listened to and very much enjoyed James
Yorkstons new album, The Year of The Leopard. Its his best album so far too...looking forward to seeing him at Green Man

today I listened to a bit of Stve Lamacq on 6Music, and bleached the garden. It needed to be done sadly, the bins were stinking, so I got rid of them all. The bin is collected on my street on a Wednesday morning, when I'm in London, so they've been growing for a while. Such is life.

    Hi Rob, sorry I fell asleep during the show last night (a reflection on working 12 hours - nothing to do with the show!). Anyway I'd like to add my suggestions for the covers show... Would be great to hear Half Man Half Biscuit's 'Song to the Siren' (Peel session). And I imagine lots of people mentioned the Fall - my own fave being their version of R Dean Taylors 'Gotta see jane.' Also what about You Sexy Thing or Lola by the recently reformed Peel-faves Cud (who I'm off to see tonight in Leeds!)

    My favourite ever cover, totally totally monster is Sonic Youth's cover of the Carpenter's song, Superstar. It's on a Carpenters tribute album from 1994, called something like "To be a Carpenter" (I think). I haven't heard it for many years. They used to play it non stop on the local indie radio station near me back in the nineties. I'd love to hear it again . . . and again and again and again.

    Can anyone give me further information of the reformation of Leeds based band CUD as fronted by Carl Puttnam (I bought some donuts from him once when he worked in a bakery!)

    Are these guys doing any gigs in the forthcoming months etc.. Any info would be magic as I miss these guys playing live!
