Mixcloud Select: Upside Down – 20 Indie No.1s 1980-89

To introduce our new Mixcloud Select site, we’re reactivating our classic Virtual CD Of The Month feature and reissuing the original virtual CDs that we tried to entice people into backing us on Patreon!

Upside Down is a collection of twenty songs that reached number one on the UK independent singles chart. From big name acts like The Smiths, Depeche Mode and New Order to others who never found huge mainstream success – Half Man Half Biscuit, The Woodentops, Spizzenergi – Upside Down chronicles the formative decade of what came to be known as “indie music”.

This and all the other Virtual CDs can be yours when you join us on Mixcloud Select, as well as the weekly extended Deluxe Edition of Off The Chart, the spin-off show Further Off The Chart every dexy1, and other special shows whenever an idea grabs us. You can also download shows to listen offline, thus saving your precious mobile data. All this for just £2.99 a month! Can’t be bad.
