The Record Shop is Rough Trade's 30th anniversary collection, and for these discs they've brought in 30 luminaries- musicians, critics, writers, fashion folks- to pick one track each from across the store's history.

Sort of. Twenty five years ago, you could do what you liked, ‘cos Alternative rooled and some of these people became living (and dead) legends by selling no copies to no-one except the rock-swot ‘massive’ and having their life-time’s canon pinched off Peelie and how they all didn’t laugh very much at all. But it was Art, man, that counted
Indiepop 1 will delight thirtysomethings who, though they may not have seen the Pistols at the 100 Club, enjoyed the Shop Assistants at the polytechnic student union.
