Lab Overview

Limited edition pressing for Record Store Day 2017! Compilation of songs from women signed to Britain's Cherry Red label. Here's more from School Daze: "Sharon Signs To Cherry Red" began life as the archetypal independent single released on the obscure Lowther International label by archetypal independent act, The Kamikaze Pilots, the review of whom by Danny Kelly in the NME gives us the starting point: "Disturbingly, also from Norwich…comes this plaintive tribute to/assassination of all the earnest misery gobs ever signed to Cherry Red's roster, with particular reference to the Tracey Thorn pantheon." What was a gentle mocking of The Marine Girls et al is now the starting point for this meander through the 80s' underground, a period which enabled more involvement from women in independent music, a slight, if not complete, freeing up of the male-dominated hegemony that had existed before punk. Many of these artists were night-time John Peel session regulars, fighting for daytime coverage in the press, walking the fine line of questioning from the NME (hip young gunslingers asking sexual politics) and Smash Hits (Milton Keynes readers asking which hairspray they used). Sixteen tracks in all. Released by Night School's School Daze sub-label on black vinyl housed in a full color sleeve with an insert.
