More Info:

Demon Records is proud to release Intrigue - Steve Wilson Presents: Progressive Sounds In UK Alternative Music 1979-89, a new compilation assembled by acclaimed musician, singer songwriter, and record producer, Steven Wilson.  "This is my personally-curated attempt to redress the balance, and to perhaps introduce any '80s-sceptics out there to the idea that conceptual thinking and ambition didn't suddenly evaporate after '77... ambitious, weird and thrilling music was all around you in the '80s -if you looked in the right places." - Steven Wilson  Featuring 58 tracks, the collection explores the creativity, experimentation and progressive spirit of alternative British music from 1979-1989.  Artists include Wire, XTC, The Stranglers, Ultravox, The Durutti Column, Cocteau Twins, Kate Bush, Tears For Fears, and many more.  Pressed at Pallas on seven 140g-vinyl, housed in printed inner sleeves and a rigid outer slipcase, with a 40-page booklet featuring an introduction by Steven Wilson and extensive track-by-track liner notes by James Nice.  Mastered by Phil Kinrade and cut by Cicely Balston and Barry Grint at AIR Mastering.
