The late '80s saw an abundance of jangly pop bands across the UK, and there were many, many wonderful releases to take in. Near the top of the heap sat this wee empire from Newcastle called Woosh (who booked gigs and did a fanzine, in addition to the label), who released ten 7"s - most of them flexis - in 1988-1989.

It was an even mix of current popular bands (Pooh Sticks, Groove Farm, Choo Choo Train) and newer, unknown bands (Holidaymakers, Nivens, Esmerlda's Kite), and always reliable. This disc collects those ten perfect little records (sans one band, who unfortunately would not grant us permission to use their track) onto one handy disc to make for nearly an hour of top-notch jangly indiepop! Note: due to the lack of master tapes, in some cases the audio was lovingly extracted from the original vinyl, and is presented to you here in all of its mid-fi glory; sound quality purists be forewarned...
