1. Product Details

Double 180gm clear vinyl LP pressing with deluxe gatefold jacket. Features two extra tracks. 2019 collection. Britain wasnt on its own in having a thoroughly miserable 1973. Tens of thousands of Britons remained housed in wartime pre-fabs and sub-standard dwellings. The bright new colors of the post-war Festival of Britain and Harold Wilsons talk in the 60s of the white heat of technology now seemed very distant as strikes inflation and food and oil shortages laid Britain low. What had gone wrong And what did pop music have to say about it With perfect timing this album soundtracks Britain on the brink of chaos. It includes lost masterpieces Phil Cordells Londonderry gritty singles by the new names of the early 70s Mungo Jerrys Open Up David Essexs Stardust and forgotten gems by some of the biggest names of the previous decade now struggling to make themselves heard the Kinks When Work Is Over the Troggs Im On Fire. Sometimes the approach was tongue-in-cheek the Strawbs Part Of The Union other times it was the sound of sheer frustration Mike McGears Kill and occasionally it was angry enough to incur the wrath of special branch Hawkwinds banned Urban Guerilla. Mostly the sound of these records evokes the feeling of nights in with only candles to light the house and TV closing down at 10pm: the empty spaces of Adam Faiths In Your Life the fuzz guitar minimalism of Ricky Wildes Hertfordshire Rock Climax Chicagos alternative lifestyle-musing Mole On The Dole. Compiled by Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs it amplifies the noise of a country which was still unable to forget the war even as it watched the progressive post-war consensus disintegrating. We hear shrugs and cynicism laughter through gritted teeth melancholy and a real anger that would rise to the surface with punk a few years later.
