Various - Scared To Get Happy: A Story Of Indie-Pop 1980-1989 cd box

(Cherry Red Records)

Regular price $60.00

mammoth five-disc retrospective of '80s UK indie that doesn't just focus on the much-revered c86 era, but also the Sound of Young Scotland, the proto-twee of Dolly Mixture & Marine Girls, and even the seeds of the Madchester & shoegaze scenes that were planted at the end of the decade; sure, there a few key bands missing, but the 134 tracks that are included here make for an exciting 6½ hours!
