Intrigue - Progressive Sounds In UK Alter Music 1979-89

Intrigue - Progressive Sounds In UK Alter Music 1979-89

Postby xymox970 » Fri Jan 20, 2023 7:22 pm ... gue_boxset

Steven Wilson Presents: Intrigue - Progressive Sounds In UK Alternative Music 1979–89 is a 4CD boxset collecting 58 tracks that explore the creativity, experimentation, and progressive spirit of alternative British music from the late 1970s to the late 1980s.

Compiled by SW and featuring sleeve notes from James Nice (Factory Benelux), the collection includes pieces by XTC, The Cure, Bill Nelson, Kate Bush, The The, Japan, No-Man, Robert Fripp, Ultravox, Dead Can Dance, Durutti Column and many others.

"This is my personally-curated attempt to redress the balance, and to perhaps introduce any 1980s-sceptics out there to the idea that conceptual thinking and ambition didn’t suddenly evaporate after 1977. Ambitious, weird and thrilling music was all around you in the 1980s - if you looked in the right places.” - Steven Wilson
