One of the UK’s most vibrant young indie labels turns 15 this year. Here are 15 collectable vinyl treasures from their first decade and a half

Over the past 15 years, London-based label Transgressive, founded from Tim Dellow and Toby L’s student loan cheques, has brought us a wealth of releases from the likes of Foals, Let’s Eat Grandma, At The Drive-In, Africa Express, Marika Hackman and Graham Coxon. Here, Dellow shares the stories behind 15 collectable gems they’ve released over that period. Be it for the music (it’s always about the music) or the aesthetic, Long Live Vinyl met up with Tim to talk through some of the label’s favourite curios…

About Long Live Vinyl

The Clash, Gang Of Four, Buzzcocks, The Pop Group… 1979 was a hell of a year for music! Our epic cover feature tells the true story behind one of the most influential albums of all time, London Calling, as a new deluxe 40th anniversary reissue is unveiled. We also speak to a host of bands who wouldn't have existed without The Clash's revolutionary masterpiece. In other 1979 news, we've rounded up the key members of the post-punk movement that shaped one of British music's greatest years to tell us why it was so special and dig out some of the essential records from the final year of the 70s. Elsewhere, we count down the 40 greatest double albums of all time, London Calling included – from Tago Mago to Daydream Nation via Songs In The Key Of Life and The White Album. How many have you got? Talking of great classic albums, we take an in-depth look at Gene Clark's lost masterpiece No Other, finally given a reissue by 4AD this month. And our packed interviews section brings you chats with ELO legend Jeff Lynne, rising Irish folk heroes Lankum, indie veterans Stereophonics and Tindersticks as they tell us about their new albums. If all that's not enough you'll find a host of new release and reissue reviews from the likes of Nick Cave, The Rolling Stones, Prince, R.E.M., The Who, FKA Twigs and Michael Kiwanuka, as well as the latest turntable reviews. Long Live Vinyl is THE magazine for vinyl lovers.
