Last fall, Cherry Red Records announced the release of a fantastic British indie collection Scared To Get Happy: A Story of Indie Pop 1980 - 1989, and yesterday the official tracklisting was finally revealed! Prepare to swoon - the collection is jam packed with well known acts from the era and balanced out nicely with more obscure/harder to find acts. Though an official release date hasn't been announced, the five disc collection is expected in June - a launch party featuring live music from artists included on the boxset (so far the Primitives, Popguns, Mighty Mighty are confirmed to perform) takes place at 229 in London on June 22nd, so it's likely the release will be officially out around then.  So far pre-order info hasn't been posted on the Scared To Get Happy Page, or Cherry Red's official site but it should be available soon.

In the meantime, take a look at the tracklisting below - but get a napkin/towel first 'cause you're going to drool...
