The two Cherry Red Pillows & Prayers compilation albums, originally released in 1982 and 1984, were is an all-embracing collection of records that were achingly hip, lovably gauche, and are still bizarrely enduring. 

This timely reissue, collecting both albums on a double-CD set, offers a fantastic snapshot of the surge of creativity that surrounded Cherry Red and the eclectically inventive UK indie scene at the start of the 80's and features early recordings from many pioneering and distinguished artists, including Marine GirlsEverything But The Girl, Eyeless In Gaza, the Monochrome Set, Tracey Thorn, Felt and many others…
