"Shoegaze” was a term invented circa 1990 to describe a new breed on UK Indie guitar bands inspired by the likes of 4AD Records, My Bloody Valentine and US acts like Sonic Youth.

Issued in early 2016, the critically-acclaimed 5-CD box set STILL IN A DREAM paid tribute to that seminal period with numerous classics, cult favourites, rarities and tracks new to CD.

Although “Shoegaze” was initially a derogatory term to pigeonhole a clutch of new acts, the term quickly evolved to become an accepted genre of music which has influenced successive generations of bands, especially those outside of the UK.

STILL IN A DREAM is now reissued on vinyl as a deluxe, gatefold sleeved double-LP edition, including many of the key tracks from the original 5-CD box set (which is still available). This is a limited edition of 1,000 copies.

Side one acknowledges the 80s independent acts who helped inspire “Shoegaze” – The Cocteau Twins, The House Of Love, Spacemen 3. Side two includes some of the genre- defining acts from the start of the 1990s: Slowdive, Lush and The Telescopes. Sides three and four demonstrate the breadth of talent which followed, including acts from America.
