21 Songs for John: 7 - Grandmaster Gareth

Grandmaster Gareth – Garethcetamol

Gareth's quirky 'One Minute Melodies' were a much loved fixture in the later years of the John Peel show.  He recorded a  session in September 2003 and also snuck into the festive fifty of that year, the final chart to be revealed by John Peel, with the engaging 'Dr Dre Buys a Pint of Milk'.  Peel's naming of Gareth as 'the new God' may have been tongue in cheek, but it still revealed the high level of appeal Gareth's musical adventures held for him.  He'd go on to make the festive fifty twice more with his band Misty's Big Adventure.  His most recent solo album Magical Sound Shower came out on Dandelion Radio DJ Gareth Main's GM Sounds label and did much to further enhance his reputation for oddball yet intelligent tunes.  'Garethcetamol' is a new tune exclusive to this album.
