‘Still In A Dream: A Story Of Shoegaze 1988-1995’ to be released on 29th January! Pre-order your copy now

“Shoegaze” was a term invented circa 1990 to describe a new breed on UK Indie guitar bands inspired by the likes of 4AD Records, My Bloody Valentine and US acts like Sonic Youth.
Bands like Ride, Moose, Lush, Pale Saints and The Telescopes married dreamy, off-kilter melodies, skewed, heavily effects-laden guitar riffs and psychedelic production values. Although “Shoegaze” was initially a somewhat derogatory term to pigeonhole a clutch of new acts, the term quickly evolved to become an accepted genre of music which has influenced successive generations of bands, especially those outside of the UK.
Housed in a lavish ‘book’ set, our forthcoming STILL IN A DREAM 5CD Box Set pays tribute to that seminal period with numerous classics, cult favourites, rarities and tracks new to CD.
Across five discs, the evolution of the sound labelled as “Shoegaze” is charted from the bands who inspired it on Disc 1 to many of the US and other non-UK acts on Disc 5. Awash with rare memorabilia, 12,000 words of sleeve-notes from journalist Neil Taylor and band biographies, STILL IN A DREAM is the ultimate tribute to what was also called ‘The Scene That Celebrated Itself’!
NB: This product is released 29th January 2016 and will not be dispatched until this date.
