Details Emerge for Expanded C86 Reissue

Details Emerge for Expanded C86 Reissue
Last year, we learned that NME's classic 1986 indie pop cassette compilation C86 would be getting an expanded reissue. At long last, details for the release have finally emerged.

As Slicing Up Eyeballs reports, the compilation was initially planned to be released as a double CD, but it has now been expanded into a triple-disc set.

The first disc will feature the original 22-track indie pop collection. From there, the second and third discs will include rare or previously unreleased tracks from the same era of scrappy indie pop. Among the artists included on the comp are Primal Scream, Happy Mondays, the Pastels, the Jasmine Minks, Pop Will Eat Itself, Biff Bang Pow!, the Wedding Present, and the Jesus and Mary Chain, among others.

Sweetening the deal even further, the box will come with a hefty booklet that includes an 11,500-word essay from Neil Taylor, one of three NME writers who compiled the original C86 cassette.

The C86 reissue will arrive on June 9 via Cherry Red Records. The release's tracklisting is available below.
