Review

Review Text Originally released in 1982 on the U.K. Cherry Red label, this compilation was initially sold for 99 pence, a marketing ploy that caused it to stay on the U.K. indie charts at number one for almost five months. Focusing on the famed post-punk/new wave label's earliest recordings from artists like Everything But the Girl ("On My Mind"), Eyeless in Gaza ("No Noise"), Felt ("My Face Is on Fire"), Monochrome Set ("Eine Symphonie des Grauens"), and Marine Girls ("Lazy Ways"), it opens a vivid and eclectic window into the dawn of alternative rock and the death of the U.K. punk scene. ~ James Christopher Monger
