Includes all their big hitters and most prominent artists I guess.
Shout out for underrated gems like the Pale Saints and Ultra Vivid Scene debut albums, and Colourbox.
No Dead Can Dance, the wrong Cocteau, Pixies, Muses. Filigree and PID are the only 2 I agree on.
They certainly got the artwork right... Vaughan Oliver would be well impressed with the above! 😂😂😂
It’s solid! I was born in ‘78 and started to recognise something very special about 4AD and Beggars Banquet (damn clever names for labels) - they’ve always spotted and supported the original, obscure and raw talent. You don’t need to be a goth to appreciate the Dead Can Dance or The Birthday Party.. Bauhaus!!! If it weren’t for these guys we might’ve lost the purity of the Pixies to an American mainstream (not to forget Frank Black’s firsts three solos or The Breeders) - but later to see and hear something special like Future Islands or even Grimes.. St. Vincent, Daughter, TV on the Radio.. pretty sure if I were to google this shit I’d find more but regardless.. thank you for the pleasant surprises you have to offer every time I feel like we’re heading into a regurgitated, chewing of the cud. I still smile when I see these labels. There is still original content out there and you’re giving it life 👍👌😎
No love for Wolfgang press funky little demons? Lush should have factored into this as well.
Great list, but would add Mark Lanegan Blues Funeral and Blonde Redhead 23
Clan of Xymox’ Medusa is an absolute beauty. Please give it a listen
