The included 20-page booklet with exclusive new extensive liner notes from all four band members – especially written for this release – along with photos, classic sleeve images & items from their personal archives make this to be a rather special package!


"The best thing about this collection is that it’s a reminder of how basic indie-rock can still be thrilling.”

La Varieté
La Varieté was the 1982 debut album by Weekend, formed by Alison Statton of much-loved Welsh avant-garde/indie pioneers the Young Marble Giants alongside guitarists Simon Booth and Spike. A beautifully realised and delicate collection of songs set against a jazz backdrop, it switches across myriad musical settings including samba, cabaret, Afrobeat and highly personal, confessional pop. The album was originally released in 1982 on the Rough Trade label and made it to No 4 in the independent charts staying in there for 15 weeks. It was revered by critics on release as a bold new departure from the prevailing post-punk ethos and served as a major influence on Saint Etienne, the Sundays, Belle And Sebastian and many others. This comprehensive reissue features nine bonus tracks, including demos and 12-inch versions of singles ‘A View From Her Room’ and ‘Drumbeat For Baby’, and liner notes prepared by the band itself.

Indie Hits 1980 - 1989
Indie Hits is the first and only complete guide to the first decade of Britain's Independent records chart, and to the acts, the music and the labels which made up the Indie scene of the 1980's. The book is set out in a similar format to the Guinness Hit Singles and Albums books, with every artist, single and album to have shown in the indie charts over the 10 year period being detailed. The first Independent charts were published by the trade paper Record Business in January 1980, by which time they were well overdue. By that time, Mute Graduate, Factory, Crass, Safari and Rough Trade were just a few of the new breed of rapidly expanding labels already scoring hit records. They were producing acts like Depeche Mode, UB40, Toyah, The Cult, Joy Division and Stiff Little Fingers, all to become major international sellers. Later years brought the likes of the Smiths, New Order, Erasure, The Stone Roses, James, The Fall and Happy Mondays (not to mention Kylie and Jason!) - all successful and influential independently -distributed hitmakers. The A-Z section details every chartmaking 1980s indie act and all hit records in a detailed but easy to reference format. Also included are complete indexes of single and album titles, an authoritative history of the origin and development of the Indie charts during the 1980's, listings of all No 1 singles and albums with illustrations of rare original sleeves, print ads and other memorabilia of the period plus a fax 'n' trivia section including the artists and labels with the most chart records, the most No 1's and the longest chart stays. If it was in the indie charts of the 1980's - It's in here! Our Price: £16.49

Working Nights 2CD
Working Week were formed within the vanguard of London’s jazz-dance scene of the early 1980s.
The collective revolved around Simon Booth and esteemed jazz musician Larry Stabbins (both previously with Rough Trade act Weekend), and singer Julie Roberts.
Their debut single ‘Venceremos (We Will Win)’ boasted Tracey Thorn and Robert Wyatt on vocals and reached the Top 75. Julie Tippetts (nee Driscoll) sang on the brooding follow-up ‘Storm Of Light’.
Debut album WORKING NIGHTS was one of the cult favourites of 1985, peaking at No. 23 on the charts and spawning several more singles.
WORKING NIGHTS has long been out-of-print and impossible to find on CD. This deluxe reissue finally introduces many of their non-album tracks and remixes to the digital format, including the bonus 12” ‘Stella Marina’ with a rap from Jalal of The Last Poets.
Also includes two previously unissued live tracks.
