I know a lot of people go for Rough Trade or 4AD for the best label of the 80s, but for me it was definitely Beggars. They signed so many of my favourite bands, Trev & the boys notwithstanding. A brief list: Bauhaus, The Cult, The Icicle Works, The Nephilim, Love & Rockets, Pete Murphy…
They even put out records by my favourite contemporary band, the mighty Oceansize.

A great label. A timely compilation of their best moments wouldn't go amiss…
