A 4 CD set featuring U.K. indie guitar pop gems from the 1980s is expected to be released in 2013. Scared To Get Happy - A Story Of Indie Pop 1980-1989 compiles hard to find nuggets from both obscure and well known artists from the era.  So far the tracklisting isn't fully firmed up, but the organizers indicate most of the songs listed below are expected to be included. If you're a fan of 1980s indie UK music just glancing at the list of bands below will likely bring a VERY big smile to your face (Felt! Milltown Brothers! Sun & The Moon! Close Lobsters! House Of Love!, wow it's ALL so goood!)  Scared To Get Happy - A Story Of Indie Pop 1980 - 1989 is expected to arrive in the spring on Cherry Red.  For more on Scared To Get Happy, visit the official page on Facebook.
