Inspired by the best in 60s sounds (Mod, garage, popart, psychedelia freakbeat), The Aardvarks were formed in the mid-1980s in Ealing, West London, as part of the same scene which eventually reared Kula Shaker. For many years, they were one of the most popular bands on the Mod and 60s Revival circuit, issuing a string of acclaimed 45s on labels such as Screaming Apple and Detour. The Aardvarks' 12-year lifespan is remembered on this compilation, built around their 1995 album for Delerium, Bargain, while also offering an equal number of choice tracks from elsewhere. The 'Varks tasted brief fame in the 90s, appearing on the James Whale TV Show and even supporting Bonnie Tyler! The Aardvarks are playing some sporadic reunion shows in 2013 to support this release.
