Following the news that we are releasing a deluxe 3 CD boxset edition of the original iconic NME indie cassette compilation...We are delighted to release details of a C86 live show at London's 229 Club on Saturday 14th June!
As some of you will no doubt have spotted, the date coincides with England’s first World Cup game against Italy so we're even bringing in a large screen so everyone watch the match afterwards - how's that for a party!?!...Grab your tickets now... https://www.facebook.com/events/555448781195933/
Curated by the same team behind last year’s award-winning 5-CD box set Scared To Get Happy, this highly anticipated reissue will be housed in a 'clamshell'-style hinged box, with a chunky booklet including a 11,500-word sleeve-note by Neil Taylor and lots of pretty pictures.
In the NME's own words...
"The album, first released on a cassette with NME in 1986, went on to inspire a generation of indie bands and features music by Primal Scream, The Pastels, Shop Assistants and The Wedding Present among many others.
Former NME writer Neil Taylor, who assisted in compiling the original 22 track album nearly 30 years ago, has written the liner notes for the reissue and helped with the curation of two bonus discs of material which will include songs exclusive to CD and some never released before including tracks by The Love Act, North of Cornwallis and Paul Groovy & The Pop Art Experience."
This triple disc deluxe edition of C86 is set to be one of the most sought after box set releases of the year, but don't take our word for it - here's what some of the world's most respected music blogs have to say about it...
THE C86 DELUXE EDITION BOX SET WILL BE RELEASED ON 9TH JUNE....PRE-ORDER YOUR COPY NOW.
