The Wake
Testament (Best Of)

The Wake started off as an outfit of wannabe post-punk goths before making the switch to Bristol's finest twee label, Sarah Records, and opting to be more whimsical, more kind-hearted, and more indie pop.  'Testament' is a sneaky best of release for the Scottish band, bringing together both sides of the band into one neat compilation: whether you're looking for the self-serious band they started as or the Sarah sentimentalists, you'll get it on here. And if you pick the vinyl, you'll get twenty-odd early live cuts and demos. Tonnes of twee.

The Wake
Harmony

Reissue of The Wake’s 1982 debut LP Harmony here. The Wake were signed up by Factory in an era when the label was looking to cash in on the successes of Joy Division, and the new wave jangles here certainly fit the bill. This Factory Benelux beefs up Harmony's original track listing with a John Peel session and the non-album single ‘Something Outside’. Notable for featuring a young Bobby Gillespie on bass.

The Wake
Here Comes Everybody

If I said it was 35 years since Scottish pop people the Wake released Here Comes Everybody then you might not believe me but it is true. The only band to appear on both Factory records and Sarah records, the band played an artful brand of synth-pop that sat somewhere between New Order and the Postcard records lot. In a word (or two) highly influential.
