Gary Crowley’s Lost ’80s

After last year’s excellent Punk and New Wave box set, broadcaster and DJ Gary Crowley has turned his attention to the 1980s, by curating a new four-CD and 3LP package called Gary Crowley’s Lost 80s.

As you might expect, this package isn’t the normal 80s compilation with images of Rubik’s Cube and Pac Man on the front, and the oh so familiar big hits, rather this is a trip through the decade via some lesser-known songs (often by some still very ‘big’ artists).

Alongside quirky selections from the catalogue of Wham!, Depeche Mode, Prefab Sprout, Spandau Ballet, Culture Club and Bananarama, sit artists like The Suede Crocodiles, Friends Again, Bush Tetras, Strawberry Switchblade (no, not that song) and poignantly, given yesterday’s news, Lost 80s also includes the dance mix of Pete Shelley‘s Homosapien. Full track listings are below.

The 4CD set is a 40-page ‘media book’ package (with notes by Crowley) and contains 63 tracks while a 3LP vinyl edition features a cut-down selection of 30. This is a coloured vinyl pressing and the label have opted for red, green and blue (reminiscent of the early ‘Now’ compilations).

Gary Crowley’s Lost 80s will be released on 15 February 2019 via Demon Music.
