Mark Whitby

On my show this month:
Previews of the autumn new releases are beginning to pour in so this month's show introduces cracking new tunes from forthcoming albums by Battles, Alasdair Roberts and Moon Duo, among others. There's more from two of the summer's finest albums, from Blanck Mass and Wooden Ambulance while we also play something from Khazakstan for the first time, with a track from the excellent Viktor Van River release on BlocSonic.
Our featured compilation this month is a reissue of not one but two vintage reggae collections from Cherry Red, while this month's Peel Back... feature dips into the Peel sessions archives from September 1969, 79 and 99. There's also, as you'd expect, something from the moon landings album from that other Peel favourite Daniel Hayman and, if you're wondering why we've not mentioned anything yet about the new Oh Sees ... don't panic because we got there eventually.

Biography:
My music-related activities over the years have been restricted to such peripheral activities as running a venue and attempting to manage a band to putting together radio shows variously named The A-Z of Punk, Idiot Jukebox and The Diamond Mine as well as masquerading as The Phantom Surfer to produce The History of Surf Music and unintentionally controversial hour-long documentary Surfin' East Kilbride, all of which have made appearances on various community radio stations over the years.

I'm the author of a book on John Peel's Festive Fifty called, with great imagination, The Festive Fifty. I edited a fanzine called The Backdoor in the late eighties, fronted a band called The Beached Whales that never got round to gigging and played amplifier lead and slides with a band who'd rather I didn't make my association with them public. I have what I believe is a healthy contempt for music journalism (even when it's good) and believe the best way to start a band is to put four people who can't play in a room with some second hand instruments, don't feed 'em and don't let them out until they've produced something great. I've tried it on several occasions and no one's died yet.
