In August 2003, Grandmaster Gareth was asked by John Peel to record a Peel Session. He decided to make a 17 minute 'Monster Melody' in order to take up as much airtime as possible. It aired on Radio One on the 17th of September 2003.

'Son Of Monster Melody' was recorded in the Winter of 2005 and included on the CD version of 'The Party Sounds of Grandmaster Gareth' as a bonus track.
