‘C89’ box set to feature The Stone Roses, The La’s, Carter the Unstoppable Sex Machine

Cherry Red Records this summer continues its series of imagined sequels to the NME’s famed C86 cassette compilation with the release of the three-disc, 72-track C89 box set, featuring U.K. indie artists such as The Stone Roses, The La’s, Carter the Unstoppable Sex Machine, The Mock Turtles, New Fast Automatic Daffodils, The Telescopes and more.

The box set, due out July 27, can be pre-ordered via Cherry Red, and follows Cherry Red’s expanded version of the original C86 compilation, released in 2014, and its follow-up multi-disc box sets C87 (which came out in 2016) and C88 (which arrived in 2017).

The label describes the new set:

C89 is another celebration of the Eighties Indie scene, documenting a golden era when tuneful guitar-based bands made records on shoestring budgets, often issued on small labels with hand-made artwork, with little hope of mainstream exposure.
