Death To Trad Rock - Various Cherry Red

Death To Trad Rock
Released 26/10/09. Acting as the perfect accompaniment, and partner in crime to John Robb’s brilliant book on a scene so smart-arse, it daren’t call itself scene, Death To Trad Rock. Here on one CD, picked by the bands themselves are 25 of the defining tracks of the era. An era when in the mid-Eighties, as Thatcher turned the screw and the charts overflowed with what felt to many like the most boring pop music ever made, the underground exploded. The post-post-punk scene was a diverse collection of bands brought together by independent releases and a never-ending series of gigs performed in off centre venues the length and breadth of the UK, aided by reportage in fanzines and radio play from John Peel. Some of these acts went on to mainstream success, some were rounded up and herded awkwardly into the NME's C86 bracket whilst others faded away, only to become seminal influences in later years. In Death To Trad Rock we meet everybody involved and find out just how they all arrived at such an unlikely tangent in such a boring decade. On Death To Trad Rock -The Album we hear the beautiful noise they created.
