Duck Hunt. Escort Crash on Marston Street. Shadowy Men. Tiger Trap. Cannanes. Couldn't fail. Didn't.

Image

My first introduction to the Hibbett, c/o Red and White Sockets. A compilation to be loved forever on that account, therefore. Always grand to hear The Freed Unit also.

Image

Viva La Diva - contains Flamingo 50. And Valerie. And Humousexual. Cracking stuff.

Montecarlo and International Hip Swing were huge to me and Irina. Those are as perfect as indiepop gets.

It's a little outside, but the Songs For Nao compilation that Tenniscoats put together is a massive treasure trove of goodies.

I'm really proud of putting together three (so far) volumes of Tri Lingual and Friends compilations. The second two especially are a lot of fun.

Although, it's not really limited to indiepop. All funtime musics though.

As far as recent indiepop, I've really enjoyed both of the Two Carnations Records compilations, Fortune Teller and Seventeen on the inside.

Ghost Winter by Rye on the All Golden is excellent, too.

spinArt's "...One Last Kiss" compilation, The Bus Stop Label's "Peppermint Stick Parade," all the volumes of Pop Jingu, Shadow Factory, and Pop American Style are among my alltime favorites.

I don't have this, which is a bit remiss as it features what may be my favourite song of all time - You'll Never Never Know by Dislocation Dance - and one by me too. How often does that happen?

Also, I think the first gig I ever played might have been Chantelle's now legendary birthday party at the Fountain!

Compilation-wise, I've always enjoyed Creation: Flowers In The Sky 1984 - 1987 and Why Popstars Can't Dance

Crikey! All these suggestions are going to keep me busy! Thank you everyone. I never realised there were so many and I do want them ALL!

Hey JulieOcean, yes that was a great night at the fountain! The adorable Richard Waaah! the ever cool Colin Waaah! and Dave 'always ready with an inappropriate yet highly amusing comment' Fountain are the team to thank for that legendary do. All of 'em legends in their own right.

Incidentally Colin Waaah! has recently written a book about cricket if anyone's interested

I tried to make a kind of "If You Liked All The Good Stuff Back In 1986, You'll Probably Like A Lot Of Other Great Newer Stuff Too" compilation for some of the folk on the North Stand Chat board via this thread -

http://www.northstandchat.com/showthrea ... C86/page11

I couldn't whittle it down to less than 104 songs over 4 CDs though - see posts 436 and 438. The thread is still going strong, and there's been a lot of talk about Velodrome 2000 and Tonieee lately...

Blimey that HKFC bloke on that Albion board (good discussion BTW) lives in the same Eastleigh/Chandlers Ford neck of the woods as me! Tell him to keep an eye out for future 'The Sun Shines Here!' nights!

The Creation Soup albums are pretty good...although more than indiepop...volume 1 is probably my most played...

Image

Tracklist and other information here : http://www.discogs.com/Various-Creation ... ase/636089

Beckett House, a benefit compilation, again, not strictly indiepop, is also well worth picking up...

Image

Tracklist etc. here (as much as Discogs do so many things right, their genres are probably best left ignored) : http://www.discogs.com/Various-Becket-H ... se/2182876

I'm actually surprised that the latter isn't going for silly money...it was rock hard to find for years...while it started as a dance music site (probably why the genres are so shit), you can find loads of great indiepop on Discogs these days...

I was going to, but the Sun Shines Here thread seems to have disappeared? I was going to post the venue name and one of your playlists so he'd know what to expect... but it's all gone. All of it. Vanished.

Fond memories of the Picnic Basket comp as my wife introduced me to it early on in our relationship.

Casablanca, companion to Monte Carlo, is rather fine.

Guitar Sketch on Quince records has tracks by Seashells, Carrots, Language of Flowers among various other likeable tunes.

Havock Junction veers away from indiepop but does feature MJ Hibbett and Prolapse.

BangPop! calls itself a collection of Bangkok international pop under which Ivy, April March and Popsicle seem to fall. Plenty of other good stuff on it.

We're delighted to announce that Cherry Red Records will be reissuing the NME's legendary cassette C86 next year as an expanded 2-CD edition, curated by its original compiler Neil Taylor.

Someone in the band doesn't want it to be released apparently - same story as THE DESPERATE BICYCLES :(
