The Unmistakeable Sound of Independence since 1978 | Call to order: +44 (0)20 8996 3120

• SCARED TO GET HAPPY (A Story Of Indie Pop 1980-1989) was the first box set ever to document the explosion of Indie Pop in Britain across the 1980s. This Record Store Day release is a gatefold double vinyl of Cherry Red’s seminal 2013 box set, charting 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 vinyl edition boasts 28 tracks spanning the Eighties, drawn from many of the key labels of the period.

• Many of the bands later tasted mainstream success: Pulp, Inspiral Carpets, the Primitives, Cud, the House Of Love, the Darling Buds.

• The gatefold details the history of this unique compilation while the two printed inner sleeves reveal more about each featured band’s own story.
