To go with today’s 30th anniversary of the 1991 Slough Festival – which took place on July 27, 1991 – we made a special mixtape featuring a few songs from all eight of the bands who played – including Ride, Slowdive, Curve and Revolver, plus some bonus cuts from Bleach (who were on the bill originally, before pulling out to tour in the US) and Starlings (who were labelmates with and shared members with Curve). Keep an ear out for guest appearances from Sir John Betjeman and David Brent, too. Click the link above to listen. Full tracklisting below.
To coincide with the anniversary, we also announced a book of photos of the day by Joe Dilworth. Grass To Gaze: Slough Festival 1991 will be released on October 27 and we will reveal more details about the book – and an accompanying launch event and exhibition at The Social – soon, but for now you can pre-order a copy.
