Buying Choices
Moby was DJ on DAB station BBC 6 Music yesterday choosing a selection of records to play throughout the day. His ecclectic choices included Roxy Music, Suicide, Joy Division, Massive Attack and six John Peel session tracks. He kicked off his selections on the Phill Jupitus Breakfast Show with Taking Advantage by Echo & the Bunnymen (a Peel session from 1982) followed by Mother of Pearl by Roxy Music, another Peel session from PIL and Staring at the Sun from his chosen album of the day by TV on the Radio. On the Gideon Coe Show he played obscure tracks by Suicide and Silver Apples citing them as major influences on his early career. Massive Attack's Karmacoma and The Buzzcocks Everbodies Happy Nowadays followed on the Nemone Show. During an interview with Nemone he commented that he would often visit dance clubs like the Dancetaria where Punk, Reggae and Gay music co-existed on the playlist which is what inspired him to experiment with ecclectic styles of music. He talked about singing with bands Vatigan Commando and Flipper and his involvement with the American Hardcore scene. His evening session choices included a BBC session of Young Savage by Ultravox, Atmosphere by Joy Division and a Peel Show version of Overground by Siouxsie and the Banshees.
