    • MILLIONS LIKE US is the first-ever box set to properly document the Mod Revival scene of the late Seventies and Eighties.

    • Across 100 tracks by all the key bands, the story of the Mod Revival is told, from its roots in Punk/New Wave through to its commercial heyday in 1979 with bands like Secret Affair and The Lambrettas and its resurrection in 1985 with The Untouchables and Makin’ Time.

    • The box set is being launched with a special live event at Wimbledon AFC – details TBC.

    • Millions Like Us follows the success of other genre-defining Cherry Red box sets (e.g. Scared To Get Happy).

    • Many tracks have never been on CD before – and The Upset’s ‘Only For Sheep’ is previously unissued.

    • The box set boasts several Top 40 UK hit singles by Secret Affair, The Chords, The Lambrettas, The Untouchables and The Truth.

    • The Mod scene continues to endure, with several books, films and TV programmes in 2014 to coincide with the 50th anniversary of Mod’s breakthrough back in 1964.

    • The box set boasts lengthy sleeve-notes and numerous rare photos within a substantial booklet.

    Please Note: This title is released December 8 and will not be dispatched before this date.

    This is the only song of theirs that was a hit in Australia. I thought that they were a one-hit-wonder.
