SCARED TO GET HAPPY A STORY OF INDIE-POP 1980-1989 - Various Artists

SCARED TO GET HAPPY A STORY OF INDIE-POP 1980-1989
SCARED TO GET HAPPY (A Story Of Indie Pop 1980-1989) is the first box set ever to document the explosion of Indie Pop in Britain across the 1980s. Compiled in loosely chronological fashion, the five CDs chart Indie Pop’s development from the post punk era and the dominance of Scottish bands through to its genre-defining C86 period and onto the end of the decade, with the arrival of Madchester and the shoegazing sound.

Inspired by the Nuggets compilations, the box set boasts 134 tracks spanning the Eighties, drawn from all the key labels of the period – Creation, Factory, Cherry Red, Rough Trade, Sarah, Subway Organisation, Zoo, Kitchenware, Pink, Chapter 22, In Tape, Medium Cool, Lazy, Dreamworld, 53rd & 3rd, Ron Johnson, el, Vindaloo, Red Rhino, Food, etc.

Many of the bands later tasted mainstream success: Primal Scream, Aztec Camera, Stone Roses, Pulp, the Wonder Stuff, Lloyd Cole & The Commotions, the Inspiral Carpets, the Soup Dragons, the Wedding Present, James, the La’s, del Amitri, the Primitives, the Jesus & Mary Chain, Prefab Sprout, the Shamen, Cud, the Bluebells, Black, the House Of Love, Strawberry Switchblade, Pop Will Eat Itself, the Darling Buds, Fuzzbox, That Petrol Emotion, the Railway Children, Jamie Wednesday (as Carter USM), the Milltown Brothers and the Boo Radleys.  

The box set boasts a stylish 54-page booklet with a lengthy sleeve-note detailing each track and illustrations of the records and bands involved.

A few tracks (Strawberry Switchblade, Soup Dragons, Bluebells, Close Lobsters, etc.) have never officially been released before. Many others are extremely rare and make their debut on CD.

SCARED TO GET HAPPY will be promoted by a mini-festival at London’s 229 club on June 22nd, with an impressive roster: the Primitives, the BMX Bandits, the Brilliant Corners, the June Brides, Mighty Mighty, the Wolfhounds, the Popguns, 14 Iced Bears, the Blue Orchids and Yeah Yeah Noh.

Dos Dedos Mis Amigos/A Lick of the Old Cassette Box
By 1994, Pop Will Eat Itself had developed from indie dancefloor friendly rock rappers into an angry, proto industrial machine. Signed to a new independent label, Infectious Records, they continued their steady stream of hit singles ('Ich Bin Ein Auslander', 'RSVP', 'Everything's Cool') and began to make serious inroads in America, thanks to their association with Trent Reznor and his Nothing label.

'Dos Dedos Mis Amigos' charted around Europe and in the US, and saw the band's profile rise considerably. The tracks also spawned a successful double album of remixes, 'Two Fingers My Friends', in 1995 and a follow up album was hotly anticipated. However, after the departure of Graham Crabb the band gradually imploded, leaving a new album's worth of recordings unreleased. Until now.

Produced in conjunction with the band, 'A Lick Of The Old Cassette Box' compiles twelve unreleased songs recorded in 1995 and 1996, and heard here for the very first time. Heavy on riffs and beats, this is the blueprint for the industrial crossover sound The Prodigy were about to fill stadiums around the world with in the late 1990s. Accompanied by detailed liner notes from guitarist Adam Mole, this 'lost' album is a must hear for diehards and casual fans alike.

  • Remastered and expanded
  • Contains three UK hit singles, demos and selected b-sides and remixes.
  • Also contains an entire unreleased album
  • Detailed essey and liner notes from guitarist Adam Mole
  • Produced in conjunction with the band, including edits and track sequencing by Clint

A Lick Of The Old Cassette Box (The Lost 1996 Album) Limited Edition Vinyl

PLEASE NOTE THIS ITEM HAS NOW SOLD OUT!!

Limited Edition of 200 Orange Vinyl In recycled manila, stickered sleeve

Prior to their disbanding in 1996, a new look Pop Will Eat Itself, with Clint Mansell now the sole vocalist, wrote and recorded the bulk of what was to be a new album for release at some point that year. Informed by recent forays into America and involvement with Trent Reznor and Nine Inch Nails, the new material saw the band unwittingly lay down a blueprint for the arena filling industrial/electro crossover which was to dominate the latter half of the decade at the hands of Prodigy, Chemical Brothers, Marilyn Manson, NIN and co, whilst retaining their own inimitable style; a sound laden with heavy riffs, choice samples, angry synthesisers, processed vocals and a collage of live and programmed drums. Sadly, though, the band would be pulled apart by forces beyond their control before the record's completion, and those recordings were destined to sit in the vaults for seventeen years. until now. 

Sourced and compiled in collaboration with Adam Mole and Clint Mansell, 'A Lick Of The Old Cassette Box' compiles twelve of those tracks to finally produce that 'lost' album. A natural successor to 1994's 'Dos Dedos Mis Amigos' set, and featuring the 'should-have-been' single 'T+A=$', along with a handful of songs the band performed live during a final run of shows in 1996, '...Cassette Box' provides both a perfect bookend to the band's recorded career and a tantalising glimpse of what might have been, had the stars aligned in their favour.

A must for die-hards and any scholars on '90s British independent music, and pressed here on extremely limited orange vinyl, this is a surefire collector's item of the future, and sure to sell out very quickly.
