For over 15 years The Old Grey Whistle Test graced British television screens and would go on to become one of the most incredibly influential music programmes. From its premiere in 1971, through to its finale in 1988, the BBC show hosted countless performances from a number of seminal artists. A remarkable appearance would often help propel an artist from being a mere unknown to a household name.

UMC and the BBC have teamed up and created a set of lovingly curated branded compilations which celebrate the show and all the incredible music it featured. Each 2LP collection is made up of carefully selected original studio recordings of the many interesting and eclectic tracks that were performed on the show.

Cherry Bombs takes us on a journey through all the punk, post-punk and new-wave that became synonymous with the show in from the late 70s onwards and features artists such as Iggy Pop, Ramones, The Jam, Ultravox, Adam & The Ants and many more…
