Phew. We were dangerously close back there to needing to give Gl*nner some role in Pulp's success...

From the Peel Wiki -
"JP gained a renewed interest in the band when he saw them supporting the Fall at the Corn Exchange in Cambridge. He was convinced as a result of this that the band had recorded a large number of sessions for his programme, but was shocked to find only one when he consulted Ken Garner's In Session Tonight"

From Pulpwiki -
"Date: Monday, 30th March 1992
Venue: Corn Exchange, Cambridge
Supporting: The Fall
John Peel was present and later commented that this was the first time he'd been aware of Pulp since the '81 Peel Session. When talking to Jarvis and Nick at Peel Acres in September '95 he had this to say: "It was a really good gig and I came back thinking that's really good, and I thought we must have had loads of sessions from you over the years, so I went to look at Ken Garners book and at that stage there was just the one."

From the Fall gigography -
"Monday, 30 March 1992 Corn Exchange, Cambridge
Time Enough at Last / Idiot Joy Showland / Free Range / The Mixer / Blood Outta Stone / Mr. Pharmacist / Married, 2 Kids / Gentlemen's Agreement / Big New Prinz / Return / And Therein / Edinburgh Man / The Birmingham School of Business School / White Lightning / Deadbeat Descendant / High Tension Line"

I wonder what Mark E. Smith thought of Pulp.
Suede also supported The Fall around that time. When Smith died, Suede's bassist Mat Osman shared this cracker of a story:

Back in the day Suede got asked to support The Fall on a couple of dates. To a man we were massive fans and VERY excited to be asked. Everyone told us he could be rough on support bands but he was great. Lots of time to soundcheck.

He was friendly, helpful, told us to come straight to him with any problem. The shows were great, his crowd were great, The Fall were great. On our way home in the van we were listening to Richard Skinner and he had an interview with Mark. We listened in intently.

Especially when Skinner asked, "Do you like any of the new bands who are calling you an influence?"
Mark said "Like who?"
Skinner asked "Well, like Suede."

There was a perfectly timed beat.

"Never heard of them."

Speaking of Suede, I was just bidding on a demo tape from 1990, was winning it for a couple of days at 10, it ended up finishing at 227!!!!! Crazy money!

Blimey. The same geezer who sold the Separations tape. Think he has a couple of Elasticas listed too.
