The Mogwai track is called 'Helps Both Ways' and samples John Madden. You're
correct in saying that they were refused permission to use the sample, and
the track appeared on their 'Come On Die Young' album with a different
commentary sample. As far as I'm aware, the track never formed part of a
Peel session, but it was part of the set Mogwai played at Chemikal
Underground's 5th birthday party, which Peel broadcast in March 2000.
