The best albums I have ever owned. The classics that should be in every music library.
"Lonely Is an Eyesore" is a compilation on the 4AD label, released on this day (June 15) in 1987. All tracks were recorded during the period immediately preceding the release (1985-1987), with the exception of "Frontier" by Dead Can Dance, which was a demo by the group from 1979. The title of the release comes from the lyric of the track "Fish" by Throwing Muses, at that time the newest signing to the label.
2011 tribute to Manchester quartet the Smiths on this release, Indie Rock luminaries including the Wedding Present, Built to Spill's Doug Martsch, Throwing Muses co-founder Tanya Donelly, Telekinesis and William Fitzsimmons contribute covers of 20 classic songs by Morrissey, Marr and the boys.
