Mammoth trawl through DJ's record collection comes to its alphabetical conclusion

The Space have come to the end of their cataloguing of John Peel's collection by artist name, taking 100 from under each letter of the alphabet - 'Z' is now online, and you can have a look here.

With pleasingly hirsute finality, Texas's most prolific purveyors of facial follicles, ZZ Top, stake a claim of five albums in the list. Alongside them, there are the usual suspects - Frank Zappa, The Zombies, Warren Zevon - as well as Congolese soukous band Zaiko Langa Langa, 90s US psych-rockers, the well-named Zen Guerilla, and dub ensemble Zion Train.
