’80s and Indie

March 11, 2008

Our contributor Furtho has banged together an ’80s indie(-ish) pop mix, with a tiny stray over into the ’90s. “So as to provide space for a few examples of lesser-known bands of the period and genre, I’ve deliberately not included any Sarah Records tracks here, although the spirit of the label looms large over much of this (to clarify, I do genuinely love absolutely all of these tracks – yes, even now, in 2008).”

1. Brian – You Don’t Want A Boyfriend
2. Frazier Chorus – Typical
3. Friends – You’ll Never See That Summertime Again
4. Rodney Allen – Cupid’s Bow
5. Strawberry Switchblade – Trees And Flowers
6. Talulah Gosh – Beatnik Boy
7. The Apple Moths – Miserable Town
8. The Bardots – Sad Anne
9. The Bats – Chicken Bird Run
10. The Farmer’s Boys – More Than A Dream (David Jensen session version)
11. The Hit Parade – You Didn’t Love Me Then
12. The Lotus Eaters – The First Picture Of You (12″)
13. The Rainyard – Beneath The Skin
14. They Go Boom!! – Missing Person
