More than half of this month's music comes from artists we've never featured in the show before and that includes Circus World who make their debut with a fine exclusive session. Also making their first appearance are the likes of Discolor World, Blu Shorts, Scrivener and Antonio De Braga, while we also feature a track from Serafina Steer's brilliant new project, Bas Jan.
Among those who aren't show virgins, we've got a new single from the wonderful Madonnatron, something from the new Nine Tons EP, a track from the debut album from Hologram Teen, the recent Burial 10 incher and something from the new Godspeed You! Black Emperor album.
This month also marks the fiftieth anniversary of the birth of the Peel Session, so our Peel Back...section of the show duly features a session track from the Top Gear of 1 October 1967 along with tunes from the Peel shows of thirty and forty years ago this month. Sadly, we're also forced to commemorate the recent passing of two majestic figures from that period: Holger Czukay and Grant Hart.

It had a #2 hit in the UK Singles Chart with "Bamboogie" in 1998, which was based on a sample from the KC And The Sunshine Band song Get Down Tonight . The act's other hit single, also in 1998, was "The Strutt", which peaked at #36.
