The Pop Group(s)

‘New Pop;’ a term coined by NME’s Paul Morley, marked a departure from rock and punk styles in early 1980s British music, embodying aspiration and forward-thinking. Heaven Sent: The Rise Of New Pop 1979-1983 is a new 4CD boxset that captures five transformative years, embracing curated, image-conscious pop that revitalized the singles market. The set, which is released in July, serves as a time capsule between post-punk and Thatcherite pop, essential for collectors and music historians alike. Cherry Red represent plenty of tracks by the likes of Toyah, The Korgis, Thomas Leer, Hazel O’Connor, Chas Jankel, Tracie and many more. Drop us a line if you’d like to know more.
