Formed in Dundee & Edinburgh, Scotland in 1976 by Billy MacKenzie and Alan Rankine, The Associates made some of the most esoteric and lavish ‘pop’ music of their time while gleefully wreaking havoc with industry expectations – refusing to play by any rules.

This new anthology features their biggest hits ‘Party Fears Two’ and ‘Club Country’, three previously unreleased tracks, their cover versions of David Bowie’s ‘Boys Keep Swinging’, ‘Love Hangover’ and the fateful ‘Gloomy Sunday’, plus 21 other songs showcasing their musical inventiveness and MacKenzie’s incredible voice.
