• INCLUDES SLEEVENOTES FROM INEVITABLE FOUNDER JEREMEY LEWIS.

In the late 1970s and 1980s, Jeremy Lewis established and ran Liverpool’s Inevitable Records, and in doing so provided what he calls an “incubator” for an impressive selection of the talent emerging from the city at that time. From PETE BURNS and DEAD OR ALIVE to CHINA CRISIS, WAH! HEAT and others, Inevitable provided the launchpad for many successful careers. Operating initially out of Lewis’ Amazon Studios, and mutating as the years passed from an outlet for the city’s spiky post-punk sounds to a synth-pop, commercially minded imprint with major label backing, Inevitable proved popular with JOHN PEEL and found admirers from across the ‘80s musical spectrum.

Presented here for the first time is an overview of the label, including a disc of contemporary Peel Sessions from key artists and a 3,000 word account of its story by Jeremey Lewis himself. Of particular interest to many will be never-before-heard (or re-issued) work by a young PETE BURNS – his first Nightmares In Wax single, two DEAD OR ALIVE singles PLUS two PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED Dead Or Alive PEEL SESSIONS are included.

A further look at the wonderful music explored in ‘REVOLUTIONARY SPIRIT’ this is an in-depth look at the roots of several special careers, produced with input from Inevitable founder Jeremey Lewis.
