Playlist for 25 October 2016

We had an exclusive first play of a fantastic – and unreleased – SALAD track tonight! Marijne sent over a copy of Poor Peach, a track recorded at her flat in London on a four-track recorder in either 1997 or 1998. Marijne plays guitar and keyboard as well as sings and Rob Wakeman is on drum machine duties. If you caught the show – or if you click the link above to listen again – it’s your first chance to have a listen.

Marijne and Paul Kennedy are performing acoustic Salad sets under the name Salad Undressed. You can catch them at the following places:


Sat 12 Nov – The Betsey Trotwood, London EC1 (with Birdie and Trees and the Slipway)
Sun 13 Nov – Butlins, Minehead (as part of the Shiiine On Weekender – on stage at 3.45pm)
Sat 3 Dec – The Starshaped Britpop Club, London (venue to be confirmed)
Wed 14 Dec – Off The Cuff, Herne Hill (with Hot Motel, featuring former Salad producer Donald Ross Skinner and charismatic vocalist Ruper Ingham)
Sat 11 Mar – Indie Music Festival, Barcelona

In the second half of tonight’s show we commemorated 12 years since the passing of John Peel with a look back at some of the great sessions recorded for his Radio 1 show.
