A West Side Fabrication Scandinavian Indie Vol 2 Now & Then

A West Side Fabrication was, and still is, the home and the forerunning label when it comes to indie-pop music and Sweden. Three of their pioneer acts, Mufflon 5, Blithe and The Bear Quartet were so appreciated by the English radio legend John Peel (long live his memory) so he invited them to record a session each for his BBC program. Ever since those days (THEN) A West Side Fabrication has been a gigantic source of indie music with their heavy stream of quality releases up until these days (NOW) with acts like Oh My! (this brand new one from them, “Fifteen Minutes”, is on rotation at P3 among other stations), We are the Storm and The Culture In Memoriam, just to name a few.

This compilation holds 16 songs, including four new and specially written once just for this release. Besides these four new tracks you´ll find great radio indie-hits from Sweden, like Bedroom Eyes “Hand-In-Hand Grenade”, Olle Nyman’s “Don’t let those bastards reel you in” and Little Red Snapper’s “Call me on Tuesday. As a fact, all twelve previously released songs has been on rotation at P3 (national radio) here in Sweden. 

And by the way, this year A West Side Fabrication celebrate 25 as a label, isn’t it amazing?
