thanks to dave stockwell.
first known live performance of 'nick drake'
live-to-air set for john peel's show on bbc radio 1, from the bbc's maida vale 3 studio.
new order were recording a new bbc session in another studio in the complex.
from dave stockwell:
'my father my king' was kinda hamstrung by broken strings on stuart's guitar, (possibly) hence the apocalyptic ending. pretty amazing stuff though, really enjoyed it.
i really enjoyed last night. my friend pointed out that someone tuning in to radio 1 and expecting the best of british broadcasting (which it probably was) might have been confused by the feedback, bleeping and wibbling, and probably assumed that maida vale had been attacked by terrorists ...
mogwai rocked!!! especially all the noise/feedback/messing around on effects pedals after stuart broke all the strings on his guitar. a bit of a weird studio, however - not as cosy as the one the live sessions normally take place in. also, the sight of three fat old mancs looking shifty in the corridor took me aback somewhat. mogwai back on top form.
