imageHere is the track listing for Cherry Red Records’ forthcoming 3-CD box set C87. It’s the follow-up to our expanded edition of the NME cassette, C86, issued in 2014.

C87 imagines what the NME compilers might have chosen, had they revisited the idea one year later, choosing music from mid-1986 through 1987.

C87 is planned for release in late May or early June. Exact release date to follow! Below track listing is 90% cleared – barring the odd tweak. Hope you like!

  1. Saw many of these bands play live in the mid to late 80s. Delighted to see the cruelly underated Yeah Jazz in this new release.
