Various: C87

Album Review

Three-CD box set of late-80s indie rock.

C87 is the follow-up of sorts to the equally loved and lampooned C86 cassette that was given away free with the NME in 1986 that summed up a whole era, and ethos, of jangling/shambling indie guitar music. In 2014, Cherry Red issued an expanded three-CD version of that original indie mixtape, curated by Neil Taylor, original champion of this music at the NME. C87 finds Taylor once again at the helm, only this time imagining what a follow-up compilation from 1987 might have comprised.
