Various Artists / January 1981


The ultimate indie compilation that encompassed such variety that later editions would use as a template. The initial pleasure of being hit by Scritti Politti's greatest moment 'The "Sweetest girl" ' is followed by a collection of diverse groups that makes this tape so powerful. The three Postcard bands of Josef K, Orange Juice and Aztec Camera are described as various incarnations of the Velvet Underground circa '68-'70 which is no bad thing! There is a fair smattering of Rough Trade bands as this is a co-production but the performers cannot all be pigeonholed as typical RT bands. Cabaret Voltaire provided a typically dark contribution to contrast with Orange Juice's Blue Boy and likewise Aztec Camera are sandwiched between Virgin Prunes and Red Crayola. An owner's manual came in the paper with biogs and blurb. 30p an issue back then and it was worth reading as well. Most prophetic statement comes from Saxa (The Beat) who says "Buy a tape head cleaner. 1981 will be a very busy year for cassette players".
