C87: Deluxe Boxset / Various [Import] on CD

2017 three CD set. Back in May/June 1986, the New Musical Express released their mail-order cassette, C86. Aside from a few 'name' indie bands (The Pastels, Primal Scream, the Wedding Present), most acts were relatively unknown beyond the back pages and gig listings of the weekly music press. Nevertheless, C86 slowly sold an estimated 40,000 copies, and would come to embody a whole musical style and era. In 2014, Cherry Red reissued C86 as a deluxe expanded edition, adding 50 bonus tracks to the original 22. The box set was curated by original compiler Neil Taylor and had the endorsement of the NME. And once again, the package was extremely well-received and sold handsomely. To expand on the huge success of C86, here is the natural sequel: 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 making their debut on CD. None of the selections on C87 have been available on any of Cherry Red's recent compilations (e. g. Scared To Get Happy). All tracks were recorded and/or released in the year or so following C86 (i. e. summer 1986 to the end of 1987). The original C86 cassette also boasted a clutch of recordings of a more angular, abrasive nature from the Ron Johnson stable. These more 'difficult' bands are congregated early on Disc 3. Tracks new to CD include those by The Bachelor Pad, The Heart Throbs, Rote Kapelle, The Raw Herbs, the Great Leap Forward, The Submarines and Hangman's Beautiful Daughters.
