famed UK indie comp ‘C86′ getting posthumous ‘C87′ sequel box set

C87

Legendary UK indie comp C86 just got reissued on vinyl for Record Store Day and now comes word that Cherry Red is following it up this year with the C87 box set which will be released June 17. Now the NME didn’t actually release a C87 cassette, but Cherry Red got C86 compiler Neil Taylor to put this one together. The first disc features bands who made their debut in late ’86 and early ’87, including The House Of Love, The Vaselines, The Shamen, The Darling Buds, The Inspiral Carpets, Cud, Kitchens Of Distinction, The Boy Hairdressers (who would become Teenage Fanclub), The Sea Urchins, The Wonder Stuff and more. The second and third discs revisits bands who were on the original C86 cassette (The Wedding Present, McCarthy, The Servants, The Wolfhounds, and Mighty Mighty) and other indie groups of the era.
