Thee Boot Party

It was just another mail-order cassette compilation released by UK weekly music mag the NME, but C86 caused a far greater ripple than most. Collecting tracks by a pre-Screamadelica Primal Scream, The Pastels, The Wedding Presents and a bunch of other acts we guarantee you've never heard of, the tape became synonymous with an entire movement: jangling, occasionally shambling, indie guitar pop. You can meet some of the latterday descendants of the C86 generation at this all-nighter, which kicks off the Japan tour of Californian guitar slingers Sea Lions, and also features sets from Smiths-fixated combo Sloppy Joe (playing acoustically this time), sugar-sweet quartet Girls Pancakes and Nagoya duo Palm Beach, with DJs Sue and Sumire supplying the BGM.
