About this item

Burning Britain is the sequel to 2016’s acclaimed 4-CD Box Set Action Time Vision, which documented the independent Punk revolution of the late Seventies.

Burning Britain is the first-ever box set to properly tell the story of the early Eighties independent Punk scene – nicknamed UK82 - when the music went underground and thrived outside of the major label framework.

With 114 tracks, this longform 4-CD box set follows previous, acclaimed compilations from Cherry Red dedicated to Post-Punk (To The Outside Of Everything), Goth (Silhouettes And Shadows), Mod Revival (Millions Like Us), etc.

The 64-page booklet includes authoritative band biogs and an insightful foreword by respected Punk commentator Ian Glasper (author of the book Burning Britain, which inspired the title of this box set).

Big names from the early days of Punk (The Damned, Angelic Upstarts, UK Subs, Cockney Rejects, The Adicts, The Lurkers, Chelsea) are joined by all the key bands from the next wave, including The Exploited, The Anti-Nowhere League, Discharge, Blitz, G.B.H., The Toy Dolls, Vice Squad, The Business, Peter & The Test Tube Babies, Poison Girls and Conflict.
