One Little Indian

Following the announcement that John Peel’s final session CD was being released in April this year, here is the long-awaited release. The 4 tracks were recorded for one of his legendary sessions and they feature California rockers Hot Snakes. These angry young men must have touched the dj’s heart, because the songs are performed using historical musical equipment, made of Ringo Starr’s and Keith Moon’s drumkits. Opener ‘Braintrust’ is an Iggy-Pop-style angry ballad, while second track ‘This Mystic Decade’ rides the waves of rock and roll in a slightly darker way, with a remarkably screamt chorus.

The fact this is the last session from a legendary man that will never be replaced in Britain makes listening to this record definitely heart-breaking, and makes all those small ‘radio session imperfections’ even more endearing, now that the man who wanted them is now departed. But this record is one of the way we have to remember him.
