‘Still In A Dream: A Story Of Shoegaze 1988-1995′ to be released 29th January 2016

Cherry Red Records have announced the forthcoming release of the 5CD ‘Still In A Dream: A Story Of Shoegaze 1988-1995′ compilation; the discs will be presented in a ‘lavish book set’ and compile tracks from scene luminaires including Lush, Slowdive, Cranes, Pale Saints, Spirea X, Swerevedriver, Curve alongside bands inspired by them.

The set pays tribute to that seminal period with numerous classics, cult favourites, rarities and tracks new to CD.

Awash with rare memorabilia, 12,000 words of sleeve-notes from journalist Neil Taylor and band biographies, the compilation looks to be an inviting prospect for those with even a recent interest in the genre.

Full track listing details are available at the Pre-Order page

The set is available to pre-order now; with the recent reformation of Lush, who themselves have been subject to both a 4AD compilation ‘Ciao! Best Of’ and the box-set ‘Chorus’ The Complete Album Collection’ this is a timely release.

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.


  1. Hi Phil
    I am writing out to you in the hopes that you would cover our band GENAU. We just recorded and self-released a new set of songs that update classic 4AD era sounds. Our music consists of ambiguous pop songs, smeared moments of blurry hopes and familiar loss, open spaces like landscapes or empty parking lots. We live in the American Midwest . Even though we are geographically placed in the center of the country, there is a feeling of being on the perimeter, as most art and music seems to happen on the coasts. Our sounds are an expression of this paradox of being on the inside and the outside at the same time. We appreciate how busy you must be so thank you for your time
