Flatmates POTPOURRI: HITS MIXES & DEMOS 85-89 Vinyl Record

Flatmates POTPOURRI: HITS MIXES & DEMOS 85-89 Vinyl Record
Limited pink vinyl LP pressing housed in a gatefold sleeve. The Flatmates formed part of the first wave of the mid-80s resurgence of indie guitar pop. Although not appearing on the NME tape that spawned the genre, the Flatmates were widely regarded as being part of the C86 scene. In the mid-80's they ran (and gigged) with that crowd, but spurned the coy affectations of cutism. The Flatmates arrived at a time when pop was shiny and nice girls didn't play in rock bands. They never made it to the pop charts, but shortly after their demise, the likes of the Primitives, the Sundays, the Darling Buds, Lush and Elastica did. The Flatmates disbanded in early 1989 before they could release a proper studio album. This double album release gathers together the best recordings the band ever committed to tape including singles, b-sides, compilation tracks, demo's and everything in-between. It is a truly essential artifact of it's time.
