A loving compilation of British 7" rarities from 1978 to 1982, 7" Up! offers little-known, pristine pearls of pop, punk and new wave for people who haven't heard everything yet. It's always a special pleasure to flip through that box of singles. This diminutive format in black vinyl made it possible for a musician's own productions to be released in the smallest of runs. Very often for lack of funds they only came out as 7"s, in contrast to the big labels. Long since unavailable or, if to be had at all, then sadly only at hefty collectors' prices. Sometimes the B-side is an eye-opener: the A-side a let-down. And of course a centre puck is standard equipment for any lover of the 7". 7" Up! is our song of praise to a fine little medium that only a few labels are still putting out. Artists include Mark Beer, Glaxo Babies (later reformed as Maximum Joy), Contact (including member Mark E. Smith of The Fall), I Jog & The Tracksuits, Gerry and the Holograms, Brian Brain (including members of Public Image Limited), They Must Be Russians, Moondogs, Thomas Leer, Cult Figures, Monochrome Set, Henry Badowski and Weekend (including a member of Young Marble Giants).
