Demon Records is proud to release Steven Wilson Presents: Intrigue - Progressive Sounds in UK Alternative Music 1979-89, a 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 19 tracks, the collection explores the creativity, experimentation and progressive spirit of alternative British music from 1979-1989. Artists include XTC, The Stranglers, Ultravox, The Durutti Column, Cocteau Twins and many more.
Pressed on two 140g vinyl (mastered by Phil Kinrade and cut by Barry Grint at AIR Mastering) housed in printed inner sleeves and accompanied by a 12-page booklet with an introduction by Steven Wilson and extensive track-by-track liner notes by James Nice.
A 7LP edition is also available (DEMLPI78) featuring 58 tracks and expanded liner notes.
