Warning: lost afternoon ahead.
Today, we’ve published our guide to the UK DIY scene from 1977-85 – an incredible 131-track rundown, written by Jon Dale, of one of the weirdest and most exciting pockets of British pop history. Running from biggies (The Homosexuals, Alternative TV) to brilliantly named nobodies (Grab Grab The Haddock, Naffi Sandwich), it’s one of the most thorough features we’ve ever published, full of stunning, surprising buried treasures.
As per our recent 100 greatest IDM tracks, we’ve collected the list (bar one or two AWOL exceptions) as a single YouTube playlist. Click here to access the playlist, or, alternatively, click below to run through the tracks.
