Best Boxset Ever?




Someone obviously was peeking into our office record collection when they made this gem of a box set. On October 2 The Brit Box: Indie, Shoegaze, and Brit Pop Gems of the Last Millennium is due to hit via Rhino. The set will feature UK classics ranging from 1985-2000 and will include an 80-page book full of photos and interviews with Stephen Street, Alan Moulder and Rodney Bingenheimer.

So, who wants to buy this for me as an early birthday present? Hmmm?
