Hey Wally Speaking of Rachel Love - I remember the Dolly Mixtures; John Peel was a big fan so I heard them a lot

8:47 AM, December 8th, 2021
Yes Mark, John Peel was a big fan and Mickey Bradley was telling me that they also supported The Undertones which was one of John Peel's favourites.

8:49 AM, December 8th, 2021
Teenage Kicks - his and my all time fave - I miss John Peel

8:51 AM, December 8th, 2021
What an amazing band and one of our bands (Dot Dash) had the privilege of being the support band for The Undertones on several of their US shows, but sadly I wasn't able to go to see them.

8:55 AM, December 8th, 2021

Holmbury Colts sounded like Neu or Can to me, in the best way. I just picked up the Nonecumene ep on Bandcamp. Awesome. Keep the new music coming.
