The Album Network was set up to generate interest in alternative music. It would develop and maintain radio and retail charts of up and coming artists through college and alternative radio stations and nationwide retail record outlets.

These charts also provided weekly record review columns as well as weekly summarisations of goings-on in the alternative music sector and from time-to-time a CD, like this one, would be released.

Most were hit and miss, but depending on your tastes, you could have got lucky and discovered some decent songs.

The Trashcans’ second single (according to the sleeve notes) ‘Obscurity Knocks’ is included on this one alongside Pop Will Eat Itself, The Hollow Men, Inspiral Carpets and the Chicksaw Mudd Puppies.

Inspiring stuff!

Pop, alternative, indie? – it’s still rock ‘n’ roll to me!
