Back in May/June 1986, the New Musical Express released one of their regular mail-order cassettes.

Reflecting the latest trends in Indie music, C86 was a 22-track cassette which was inspired by the NME’s C81 tape from half a decade earlier. Aside from a few name bands (The Pastels, Primal Scream, the Wedding Present, the Mighty Lemon Drops), most acts were relatively unknown beyond the back pages & gig listings of the weekly music press. A few hadn’t even issued a record! C86 slowly but surely became the NME’s best-selling ever compilation, selling an estimated 40,000 copies & eventually being reissued on LP and cassette by Rough Trade the following year. C86 prompted a week of shows at the ICA & would come to embody a whole musical style & era. This deluxe expanded edition of the original C86 cassette adds some 50 bonus tracks.
