Cherry Red Records – SCARED TO GET HAPPY – A Story Of Indie-Pop

SCARED TO GET HAPPY – A Story Of Indie-Pop 1980-1989 

Scared To Get Happy is a 5-CD Box Set to be released by Cherry Red, June 2013. Scared To Get Happy is a Nuggets-inspired 5-CD box set devoted to the 1980s Indie guitar pop revolution which swept across the British Isles. From the post-punk scene and Postcard Records through the explosion of bands celebrated by the NME on their famous C86 cassette through to perhaps the ultimate distillation of the scene, Sarah Records, Scared To Get Happy celebrates a golden era. Many of the featured artists later enjoyed hit singles – The Wonder Stuff, Lloyd Cole, The Soup Dragons, Prefab Sprout, Everything But The Girl, Inspiral Carpets, The Darling Buds, etc. 

Others shone brightly but briefly, issuing just a clutch of Indie 45s before disappearing.
