Rough Trade at the BBC

Compilation of BBC performances from artists associated with British indie label Rough Trade, including the Smiths, Robert Wyatt, Violent Femmes, Pulp and Antony and the Johnsons.

Since 1978, indie label Rough Trade has been backing ground-breaking artists of every sensibility. From the post-punk girls who sound like they've been overheard singing to themselves at a bus stop, to the raw rock'n'roll of the Strokes and the Libertines, this compilation of BBC performances draws together some of the music that has made Rough Trade the institution it is.

Includes the Smiths, Robert Wyatt, Violent Femmes, Pulp and Antony and the Johnsons.
