Mojo's UK indie top-50
Heritage-rock bible Mojo Magazine has published its list of
the 50 greatest UK indie records of all time
. For the most part, it's quite solid, being a melange of Glasgow-school new-optimists, C86-era janglepop and the odd bit of arty post-punk.

The Sarah Records roster is represented by one track, The Sea Urchins
' Pristine Christine
. (I would have expected that a label that defined a big chunk of what British indiepop was for a stretch of the late 80s and early 90s would have had more; perhaps Heavenly
's Hearts and Crosses
or The Field Mice
's Emma's House
