Various - The Sun Shines Here: The Roots Of Indie-Pop 1980-1984 cd box

(Cherry Red Records)

Regular price $30.00

a sort-of prequel to the essential "Scared To Get Happy" box Cherry Red did a few years back, this three-disc set focuses just on the first half of the decade, including a mix of classics and obscurities from several bands that were popular at the time (Dolly Mixture, Altered Images, Bluebells, Marine Girls...), early tracks from bands that would later become more popular (Biff Bang Pow, JAMC, Jasmine Minks, Pastels...) and even songs from bands whose members would go on to form Razorcuts, 1000 Violins, Bachelor Pad and more!
