- Compiled By – Adrian Gibson
Compiled by Adrian Gibson who was the programmer at North London's Powerhaus venue at the time. The Powerhaus was owned by the Mean Fiddler Group who turned a pub called the Pied Bull into a live music venue for a limited time from 1989 - 1995. The site of the venue is now a Halifax Building Society and is located at 1, Liverpool Road, London, N1.
The idea behind the compilation is to showcase 10 of the hottest new bands who were coming through the ranks of the venue around that time. All of the songs were mastered from the band's demo tapes. There was a launch night at the Powerhaus where all 10 bands played short sets. Adrian Gibson was interviewed on Gary Crowley's GLR Radio Show on the day of the event to promote the show.
This was the first official release by SUEDE before they changed musical direction and signed to Nude Records. They were managed by Nadir Contractor at the time who went on to be a live music promoter and then a product manager at Sony Records.
