Peel the caps back

And here's your postscript: I saw the current incarnation of Extreme Noise Terror last night supporting Nasum, and they were, perhaps improbably after all these years, quite wonderful, playing everything from "Bullshit Propaganda" through to 2001's "Being and nothing" and "Damage limitation", and with lead shouter Dean Jones imploring his daughter in the front row to "stay punk". Before their last song, Dean just said, "This is dedicated to our best friend... John Peel" and then they seared their way through "Carry on screaming". I'm not ashamed to say it brought tears to my eyes. So, John, carry on screaming indeed.
