      Thanks for posting.

      Given NME's readership at the time, it's a surprise the paper took as long to publish an Indie chart.

                As far as i know this is the first chart that NME compiled on their own,
                i believe they publish MRIB one from January '80 up to that point
                Am i right Metalweb ?

                ps. could you please bold the new entries for better visibility

                  ^

                  NME had been printing an Indie chart since late '79 but only a Top Ten and not from any regular source (just individual shops).

                  I suppose I could post those too if there's interest....

                  New entries in bold - that's strange new territory for me....

                  Oh, go on then!

                    I suspect that there is no real need to complete odd ships because those are not really presentative of the type of thing we are looking at here. They, to me, seem to be more personal charts type of things. I know they are not personal charts, but hopefully my point is taken.

                    Now including NME, Record Mirror and Melody Maker from the UK and some Billboard charts

                          Thank you for posting.
                          Last week (30/5/1981) the Dead Kennedy's entered at 7 and not 6 in the Singles. Also Art Objects were at 28 in the Albums.
                          Is this a typo by you or NME?

                            There were two tracks listed at 6 - now corrected.

                              Also some of the 'new' entries are actually re-entries. Should I let you know when this is the case or do we just want to replicate what is in NME?

                                Yes, I did notice there were re-entries but decided to leave as originally printed.

                                                  I've just looked at the Record Business / Record Mirror / Sounds Indie chart for 11/07/81 and comparing it to the NME chart, both are very similar except for 'Teddy Bear' by Red Sovine which is at number 26 (down from 14) in the NME chart and number 4 (down from number 2) in the RB chart. Quite a difference!
