Box of delights
To the Outside of Everything: A Story of UK Post-Punk 1977-1981 surely has to be the perfect Christmas present for those of a certain age.
Scottish bands are well represented with The Associates, Josef K, TV21, Fire Engines and Boots For Dancing all featured.
It really is a fantastic compilation from Cherry Red and there are also rumours of a box set dedicated solely to Scottish bands coming sometime soon.
That could be excellent timing given the exhibitions planned for next year.
Available from December 1 in all good record shops and also online at vsilly.com/avalanche_shop.
