About this item

A quintessentially Piccadilly Records kinda label, Trunk records' unique eccentricity, uncompromising artistic outlook and fierce risk taking nature have made it a best selling staple here at the shop for nearly 30 years! Here the hugely influential label compile 33 tracks, some of which are being issued for the first time - and to boot, it's all housed within a unique David Shringley sleeve - all rejoice!

With a decidedly library / soundtrack / cinematic approach which takes on jazz, funk, psychedelia, primitive electronics and exotica / easy listening; you'll find a whose-who of antique pioneers, unheard innovators and well known names from across the musical spectrum but all somehow fitting in the intangibly quirky Trunk-mindset.

It's playful, full of wanderlust and makes you want to immediately book a holiday to the Italian countryside to look for records (whilst telling the wife you're taking her on a wine tasting odyssey). Whilst dug deep, there’s a carefree innocence that embraces all lovers of music, rather than alienating through obscurity or unlistenability.

Incudes unreleased work from Delia Derbyshire, unheard Nogmusic (from Noggin The Nog), newly discovered sounds from the Kirchin tape archive and a sex tape from a boot fayre. And of course loads of other influential, magical and beautiful music that Jonny Trunk has unearthed since 1996.
