"Alcopop have released the coolest compilation of all time' - NME

Brief biog: Back in 2006, two drunken boys borrowed some money, gambled it on a resurgent Portsmouth to beat Charlton (god bless Lomana LuaLua), and started a record label. Little did they realise that 5 years and 50 releases later, things would still be going this strong!

Based on mutual vices, musical passion and an undying respect for all things independent, those two boys shared one goal: to take the best indie pop hits, put them out on wonderful formats (frisbees, menus, maps in bottles, and lush cardboard artwork), and to create a community for people who still believe that physical releases are ace, that music is definitely not dying, and that money always comes second to good ideas, true passion and wonderful tunes.

In those five years, the boys have represented at every major UK festival with bands and showcases alike, racked up hundreds of thousands of touring miles, put on shows everywhere from ice cream shops to beaches, ripped off wholesale the Hooch logo (as yet unpunished), worked with their favourite bands of all time, broken stacks of magnificent new talent, sponsored Gretna 2008 FC, watched Cool Runnings a record 937 times, and released "the coolest compilation of all time"(NME).

Having worked with a whole host of wonderful artists - including Johnny Foreigner, Stagecoach, Midget, This City, Sam Isaac, Freeze the Atlantic, My First Tooth and more now seems like the right time to recall some of our finest musical moments on an atom powered action, solid god bubblegum, POPTASTIC compilation CD (to write home about).

The compilation comes covered in pics of Alcopop bands, fans, artists and dinosaurs (obviously).
