Three CD set. 2018 release charting the UK's 1980s Garage Rock revival, otherwise known as Trash. All of the key players! Including Thee Milkshakes, The Sting-Rays, The Cannibals, The Prisoners, The Barracudas, The X-Men, The Tall Boys, The Jesus And Mary Chain, The Meteors, The X-Men, The Playn Jayn and many, many more. Sixty of the finest must-have scene hits, lesser known deep cuts and underexposed nuggets. Produced in association with The Sting-Rays' Alec Palao, Fusing that sound with elements of the pre-Fab Four, Psych, Mod, Rockabilly and Psychobilly, and greasing the wheels of this new machine with a thick slab of post-punk sensibility, bands across the UK began to shout and holler like they hadn't in years, capturing their work on often rough and ready recordings, issued on Big Beat, Hangman, Hit Records, Media Burn, Creation and other equally fried labels. From London, Medway and the South East to Edinburgh and beyond, the Trash movement spread, quickly reaching out into mainland Europe and beyond. In the UK, Trash finally enjoyed it's moment in the sunshine in 1984.
