A proper eulogy to our dj—by Bulb.
Gorjus made me do it: “bulb, why don’t you write a proper eulogy that we can post on catoptric? you’re one of the only ones that can.”
I decided against writing a “proper” eulogy because there are enough of them out there: two of the best being by Sasha-Frere Jones of The New Yorker and Dave Morley of NME and The Art of Noise. Instead I’ll write an appreciation of what John Peel meant to me personally, and I assume the musically-minded amongst you feel similarly.
