Description

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of C86, we're now proud to announce a sequel, in the shape of C87! Imagine if the NME had reconvened a year on from their original compilation... Well, that's the inspiration for another 70+ tracks, ranging from well-known indie names to obscurities.

None of the selections on C87 have been available on any of Cherry Red's recent compilations. All tracks were recorded and/or released in the year or so following C86 (i.e. summer 1986 to the end of 1987).

Disc 1 boasts bands whose first recordings were made in 86/87.

Some of them - The House Of Love, The Shamen, The Darling Buds, The Inspiral Carpets, Cud, etc - later enjoyed chart success. Others have since enjoyed cult status, including Kitchens Of Distinction, whose debut B-side 'Escape!' appears here for the first time; The Boy Hairdressers, who would soon evolve into Teenage Fanclub; The Vaselines, who were covered by Nirvana; and The Sea Urchins, who christened Sarah Records with the classic 'Pristine Christine'.

Discs 2 and 3 revisit many of the bands who graced the original C86 cassette, checking in on later recordings by the likes of The Bodines, The Wedding Present, Miaow, The Servants, The Wolfhounds, Mighty Mighty and McCarthy.
