Peakecast Episode Nine

Filed under: Shows — dave @ 12:10 am

Welcome to Episode Nine of the PeakeCast, the Thomas Peake memorial podcast. This time, we have a mixtape from Thomas’s killer cassette collection, containing a variety of 7-inch singles. Pictured here is the cassette label, in Thomas’s handwriting:

80 1/2" Insert

As you can see, it contains a mix of music styles, from the weirdo rock of Mecca Normal, Daniel Johnston and Half Japanese on Side A, to the straight ahead punk rock of Neon Christ, the Didjits and Jawbreaker on Side B (full playlist is transcribed below). We don’t know if these were singles that Thomas owned, or if he was taking advantage of at WREK’s studios, but clearly by putting them on tape he was able to enjoy them more often, and now we can too! A complete listing of the artists and songs can be found below.

We’re posting this in early October, in recognition of Thomas’s birthday, and we have a couple more episodes on deck for later this month, including a 1996 interview with the members of the Rock-A-Teens. Enjoy!
