Demon Records is proud to release Intrigue - Steve Wilson Presents: Progressive Sounds In UK Alternative Music 1979-89, a new compilation assembled by acclaimed musician, singer songwriter, and record producer, Steven Wilson.
"This is my personally-curated attempt to redress the balance, and to perhaps introduce any '80s-sceptics out there to the idea that conceptual thinking and ambition didn't suddenly evaporate after '77... ambitious, weird and thrilling music was all around you in the '80s -if you looked in the right places." - Steven Wilson.
Featuring 19 tracks, the collection explores the creativity, experimentation and progressive spirit of alternative British music from 1979-1989. Artists include XTC, The Stranglers, Ultravox, The Durutti Column, Cocteau Twins and many more.
