For some reason I thought Matador had been around longer that 21 years.. They've come a fair old way in that time, a fact proved by the fact that the sampler CD we've got for this kicks off with 'Sacred Trickster' by Sonic Youth, a band who I'm sure no-one involved with the label at its inception would ever have thought would belong to the roster. The double LP version of this celebratory release is essentially the fifth CD (entitled Matador Today) from the satisfyingly weighty box set, which also contains a disc of live cuts to complement the history lesson of the first four CDs and probably comes off a little as the poorer relation in comparison to their highly condensed goodness.. Inevitable when you're talking about prime shit from the likes of Pavement, Cat Power, Mogwai, Yo La Tengo, The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Guided By Voices, The Fall, Mission of Burma etc. etc. The book and poker chips included with the box set should help seal the deal, even if that star-studded list doesn't!
