John Peel Tribute CD

There's a tribute cd coming out on the anniversary of this great man's death. It looks like a cracking collection and great to see that the delgados are included. The press barely gave them a mention when they listed John Peel's favourite bands, but this was a group that John personally invited to his house to play a gig for his wife's 50th birthday. There can be fewer greater accolades than that!
