It's compilation time again, where parents and grandparents up and down the land debate on what cool little Johnny and Janie are gonna be listening to this Christmas. Well I've news for you folks: you're all wrong. There's only one compilation you should be thinking of shelling out on this yuletide, or beforehand if you've got a spare tenner, and this is it. Sure, you're probably wondering how many posthumous "John Peel played this" -styled releases are going to hit the shelves in the near future, but this is likely to be the definitive one.
Right In Full Efect - Frenkie - Povratak Cigana, Wrong Speed reads like a who's who encyclopaedia of the most influential artists of the last thirty years, moving through the early developments of punk onto roots reggae and hip-hop before ending up Eat Yself Fitter - Various - John Peel - Right Time electro, goth and post-miserablist pop.
Admittedly, there's also a chance you might already own a fair few of these records in one form or another, but to hear these 38 songs all Eat Yself Fitter - Various - John Peel - Right Time one sitting, under the same roof, really is a pleasurable, occasionally educational, experience. Of course, no celebration party for John Peel would be complete without his perennial favourites The Falland their 'Eat Y'Self Fitter' rant is as incandescent and barmy as anything Mark E Smith recorded before or after it.
Yep, this really is an awesome compilation, without a duff track in sight. It is worth every penny of the asking price, so what are you waiting for? More bands announced for DiS partnered Fuzz Clu Label Focus 1: Drowned in Sound Recordings. Bloc Party - Silent Alarm. The Magic, the Mundane and The Maccabees. Jimmy Eat World answer your questions.
