It's here! A fitting sequel to 2016's critically acclaimed "Another Splash Of Colour!". A startling collection charting the C86 generation's brazen raid on the second half of the Sixties, from their fashion sense to their music to their drugs of choice.Taking The Velvets, The Doors, The Byrds and a plethora of psych originals found on the 'Nuggets' and 'Pebbles' compilations as inspiration, the latter half of the 1980s saw bands across the UK replace their angular post-punk sound with a gentler, weirder direction, fusing jangly guitars and bowl haircuts, paisley heavy wardrobes and the remnants of the glam, goth and garage revival scenes with a new positivity and enlightenment offered by the ecstasy and LSD that began to reach every suburb and estate in the land. Festivals, alternative lifestyles and neo-hippydom, raves, fashion and an encyclopaedic knowledge of 1960s recordings came together, for a brief time, in a blissed out, fuzzy replica of the late 1960s, re-imagined by a generation with little else to play for. From the 'shoegaze' movement to
