John Peel

Posted: October 26th, 2004, by Simon Minter

Anybody who’s anything to do with independent (in all senses of the word) music now – more than ever – owes it to themselves, and to all of us others who are involved, to keep on making the effort. A mainstay, whom it was all too easy to take for granted, is now gone.

Condolences to the Peel family. John will be sorely missed.

Simon Minter

Simon joined diskant after falling on his head from a great height. A diskant legend in his own lifetime Simon has risen up the ranks through a mixture of foolhardiness and wit. When not breaking musical barriers with top pop combo Sunnyvale Noise Sub-element or releasing records in preposterously exciting packaging he relaxes by looking like Steve Albini.
