Peter ‘Sleazy’ Christopherson : 1955 – 2010 : A musical memorial

On the 24th November 2011 a  private memorial for the family and close friends of Peter ‘Sleazy’ Christopherson was held at The Horse Hospital in London. This was in memory of Peter’s passing on the 25th November 2010.

The music played on the night was taken from Peter’s iTunes library.  Compiled by  friends Andrew Lahman, Cosey Fanni Tutti, Chris Carter the full list can be found here.

It was an honour to have been invited to this memorial and hear more about Peter’s life from his friends and family.

I have created a Spotify playlist of as many of the tracks as I could find there and they can be listened to here. There are quite a few surprises.  Take time out and listen.

Primal Scream present ‘the solid vibes rock ‘n’ roll C90′ – a Spotify playlist

Its 20 years since Primal Scream released ‘Screamadelica‘. As a result it feels like there is a bit of a 90’s revival taking place at the moment. Everyone ‘shoe gazing’ back 20 years to 1991.

‘Screamadelica’ was actually released later in the year and funnily enough it was reviewed in the same issue of NME (w/e 21/09/91) as Nirvana’s ‘Nevermind’. Primal Scream got a full page review and 10 out of 10 from Stuart Bailie whilst 3 pages later Steve Lamacq gave ‘Nevermind’ a 9 in a small corner review on page 36.

In early 1992 Select magazine’s Andrew Perry visited Bobby Gillespie’s Brighton flat. In a piece entitled ‘punks, drunks and junkies’, Gillespie selected 24 “songs that triggered Primal Scream” and recorded them onto a c90 cassette that was later given away to one lucky reader.  Now with the beauty of Spotify I can bring you 19 of those tracks that made up ‘the solid vibes rock ‘n’ roll C90‘.

5 tracks are unavailable. Dion’s – Born To Be With You / Dennis Wilson – Thoughts Of You* / Lee Hazelwood – Wait & See / Freddie Scott – Am I Grooving You / Tapper Zukie – New Star /

As Perry points out, Gillespie is jet-lagged, having just returned from the Memphis sessions that resulted in the ‘Dixie-Narco’ EP.  As the writer points out, its ‘heavy going’. Have a listen

23/03/14 – * now added to the playlist.
