Cherry Red is the record label releasing fantastic
compilations since many years. Now they released Where Were You? Independent Music from Leeds 1978-1989 a compilation of Leeds based bands from the early punk/new wave era until the days shoegaze turned into the new next big thing. Many bands are well know on this three CD's but with less known songs; others are new to me. Anyway it is another opportunity to step back to these days. Listening to these songs many memories returns and made me grab out other records from this decade.
The Mekons - Where Were You
The Rose Of Avalanche - Goddess
The Sisters Of Mercy - Temple Of Love
Gang Of Four - Damaged Gods
Girls At Our Best - Getting Nowhere Fast
