Product description

The very idea of a Greatest Hits Of Rough Trade--the very indiest of all of London's independent record stores--should have seemed, in theory, about as risible as the compiling of a Led Zeppelin singles collection. In practice, though, this anniversary compilation is nigh on essential. After 25 years of catering to London's most clued-up punters, Rough Trade has achieved a very respectable legacy of eclecticism; while other lesser independent record shops have tended more towards the traditional, guitar-led music that's come to epitomise modern indie, this compilation offers laudably impressive scope, collecting together a number of the chain's most popular sellers and sequencing them in a loosely chronological order. It certainly throws up some interesting juxtapositions: the caustic riot grrrl of Huggy Bear's "Her Jazz" rubbing up against futuristic avant-pop of Stereolab's "The Light That Will Cease To Fail"; the super-political anarcho-punk of Crass's "Reality Asylum" mere moments from the twee jangle-pop of The Raincoats' "Fairytale In The Supermarket"; or the cobwebbed dub of Lee "Scratch" Perry's "Jungle" that's a massive cultural leap from the loopy Icelandic pop explosion of The Sugarcubes' "Birthday". Taking risks, but seldom putting a foot wrong--really, it doesn't matter if you've ever browsed the rack of Rough Trade, as this compilation is as good an alternative pop encyclopaedia that you'll find. --Louis Pattison
