The C86 comp is a legendary document in indie history, more influential as a one-off than most of the featured bands individually.

Tassell checks in 36 years later & uncovers some fascinating stories – fates included here range from fame to tragedy to piloting a TIE fighter.

“Often funny, sometimes poignant...(a) candid, evocative snapshot of a scene that is fondly but scarcely celebrated” - Classic Pop
