“Good Night and Good Riddance: How Thirty-Five Years of John Peel Helped to Shape Modern Life” – Book

By David Cavanagh

An informative exploration of the music played by the notorious DJ on his radio show, from the years 1967 through to 2003, all placed within the cultural and social context of the time. The legacy of a hugely important figure in world music, from proto-punk to American hardcore, hip hop to acid house, grindcore to screamo, along with every other underground sub-genre of music. Who else was playing tracks from Dischord’s Flex Your Head compilation LP in 1982 anywhere, not least on national radio? A reputation somewhat tarnished since his passing (I wouldn’t like to be the judge), but, if he was alive today I’m sure he would be the loudest and the most contrite critic of the twattery he may have committed in his younger days.

Paperback 620 pages, 13cm x 20cm. (RRP £14.99)
