If I remember rightly, Cowcube was a guy from Stourbridge who happened to bump into Peel one day in town and handed him a homemade CD. I don't know if he ever got a record deal but he got a fair bit of airplay on Peel's show at the time. Ella Fitzgerald also pops up on tonight's show, along with Pulp, The Flaming Stars and many, many more.
