Album review

Various Artists - Fabric Live 7—John Peel

Described as "mood-demolishing" by Peel himself, this mix CD sees him assemble a magnificent patchwork of his favourite tracks. The range spreads from the sentimental (The Kop Choir) to the sublime (Joy Division, "Love Will Tear Us Apart") to the sublimely ridiculous (The Kingswoods' hillbilly version of "Pretty Vacant"). The remaining selections are a disparate coalition of excellent reggae, Afrobeat, funk, drum'n'bass, marred solely by the inclusion of neo-rockers The Datsuns. Six quid by subscription and it's yours.
