As we look forward to May there are stacks of great reissues, box sets and new releases on the way... here's all our latest news from Cherry Red HQ...
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of C86, we’re now proud to announce a sequel, in the shape of C87! Imagine if the NME had reconvened a year on from their original compilation? Well, that’s the inspiration for another 70+ tracks, ranging from well-known Indie names to obscurities making their debut on CD. C87 is released on 10th June. Find out more and check out the full 3CD track list here.
Another fine box set for May...'Sharon Signs To Cherry Red' is an eclectic soundtrack for the early ‘80s covering post punk, mod revival, ‘60s revival, independent scene, rockabilly/cowpunk, garage, London soul/funk, reggae dub and commercial pop, pre C86 with its looking back and looking forward, and what it isn’t, the extremes of the SAW production line of the late ‘80s and another era entirely.
