John Peel Tribute Includes PJ, Jeff Beck and, unfortunately, Billy Bragg reports:

The BBC is reporting on an upcoming tribute to the late John Peel. The double album is due out October 17th, shortly after BBC Radio's John Peel day. Tracks on the CD will span Peel's whole career, from Pink Floyd and The Doors to The Ramones, The Clash, Joy Division, New Order and The Undertones. Recent artists donating tracks include PJ Harvey, Pulp, Belle & Sebastian, Super Furry Animals and Orbital. Of note is that Jeff Beck, New Order's Peter Hook and The Futureheads will also record a cover version of The Buzzcocks' "Ever Fallen In Love" as a tribute single to be released seperately from the compilation.
