Still In A Dream: A Story Of Shoegaze 1988-1995 - Various Artists

Still In A Dream: A Story Of Shoegaze 1988-1995
"Shoegaze” was a term invented circa 1990 to describe a new breed on UK Indie guitar bands inspired by the likes of 4AD Records, My Bloody Valentine and US acts like Sonic Youth.

Bands like Ride, Moose, Lush, Pale Saints and The Telescopes married dreamy, off-kilter melodies, skewed, heavily effects-laden guitar riffs and psychedelic production values.

Although "Shoegaze” was initially a somewhat derogatory term to pigeonhole a clutch of new acts, the term quickly evolved to become an accepted genre of music which has influenced successive generations of bands, especially those outside of the UK.

Housed in a lavish ‘book’ set, STILL IN A DREAM pays tribute to that seminal period with numerous classics, cult favourites, rarities and tracks new to CD.

Across five discs, the evolution of the sound labelled as "Shoegaze” is charted from the bands who inspired it on Disc 1 to many of the US and other non-UK acts on Disc 5.

Awash with rare memorabilia, 12,000 words of sleeve-notes from journalist Neil Taylor and band biographies, STILL IN A DREAM is the ultimate tribute to what was also called ‘The Scene That Celebrated Itself’!

Complete Albums, Singles and BBC Collection
80s indie stalwarts trading in politically energised guitar pop – a true treasure chest of hooks, riffs and leftist messages.

Hailing from Barking, Essex, McCarthy are today considered one of the standard bearing politically inclined bands of that era, possessed of a broader outlook and wittier, better observed lyrics than most of the competition.

This four disc set comprises the bands three albums (originally recorded between 1987 and 1990), related singles and b-sides, and a sixteen track BBC sessions collection, most of which is previously unreleased.

➢    Albums packaged in mini LP replica wallets, and presented – along with a booklet - in a hard clamshell case.

➢    Contains countless classic originals and classic live sessions versions.

➢    75 tracks, including 3 indie top ten albums and several indie chart hit singles

➢    Also includes 12 songs recorded for the legendary John Peel.

➢    Excellent value and a must have for anybody with an interest in the 1980s’ British independent and alternative scenes or politically minded guitar pop.

McCarthy disbanded in 1990 and two of its members went on to form the wonderful Stereolab. Other members have gone on to work in popular music and the media, and the band often receive exposure from Manic Street Preachers, who regularly cite their work as both beloved and influential.

Please Note: This title is released November 24 and will not be dispatched before this date.
