"Fame" 2021 Re-Edition Mini-Mix-Listen Here!
It may be suggested that the art of the good compilation album is one that is finely balanced between selecting the familiar and the obscure. known pleasures sit alongside previously unheard offerings, ready to open up new areas of musical contemplation.
When this collection originally appeared in 2012 critical acclaim was generous:
"Tracks that, especially in our current world of templated genre, seem nothing less than extraordinary. So fired, as they all are, by the ferocity of innovative abandon – an overwhelming desire to create something shockingly new".
(Mick Middles-The Quietus 2012)
In 2021, by public demand, a slightly revised version of the collection is offered here as a Ltd vinyl ( & CD) Re-Edition.
The spine of this collection are tracks by post-punk luminaries Wire, Joy Division and the Prefects. not so 'secret' you may think, but consider the nascent lo-fi Subway Sect, the uncompromising other-worldly sounds of impLOG's “Holland Tunnel Dive” & the hyper obscure experimentalism of File Under Pop and you're getting the idea. From Pere Ubu's dystopian phychedelia to the motorik of Chrome, it's a snapshot of a brief era, heavy on invention.
