SCARED TO GET HAPPY (A Story Of Indie Pop 1980-1989) was the first box set ever to document the explosion of Indie Pop in Britain across the 1980s. This Record Store Day release is a gatefold double vinyl of Cherry Red's seminal 2013 box set, charting Indie Pop's development from the post punk era and the dominance of Scottish bands through to its genre-defining C86 period and onto the end of the decade, with the arrival of Madchester and the shoegazing sound. Inspired by the Nuggets compilations, the vinyl edition boasts 28 tracks spanning the Eighties, drawn from many of the key labels of the period. Many of the bands later tasted mainstream success: Pulp, Inspiral Carpets, the Primitives, Cud, the House Of Love, the Darling Buds. The gatefold details the history of this unique compilation while the two printed inner sleeves reveal more about each featured band's own story.
