Cover of: Various - Winter Of Discontent (2lp)
Winter Of Discontent (2lp)
Ace | 2×LP | 37 €

"Winter of Discontent" has been compiled by Saint Etienne's Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs, the latest in their highly acclaimed series of albums that includes "The Daisy Age", "Fell From The Sun" and "English Weather" ('really compelling and immersive: it's a pleasure to lose yourself in it' - Alexis Petridis, the Guardian). The era's bigger DIY names (Scritti Politti, TV Personalities, the Fall) and the lesser-known (Exhibit A, Digital Dinosaurs, Frankie's Crew) are side by side on "Winter Of Discontent". Mark Perry's Sniffin' Glue command - "Here's one chord, here's another, now start a band" - was amplified by the Mekons and the Raincoats, whose music shared a little of punk's volume, speed and distortion, but all of its obliqueness and irreverence. "Winter Of Discontent" is the definitive compilation of the UK DIY scene, and a beacon in grim times. track listingSIDE ONE1.WHERE WERE YOU_ - The Mekons2.VIOLENCE GROWS - Fatal Microbes3.THE TERRAPLANE FIXATION - Animals ^ Men4.WORK - Blue Orchids5.SMALL HOURS - Karl's Empty Body6.SOMEBODY - Frankie's CrewSIDE TWO1.CONFIDENCE - Scritti Politti2.DRINK PROBLEM - Thin Yoghurts3.LOW FLYING AIRCRAFT - Anne Bean & Paul Burwell4.BROW BEATEN - Performing Ferret Band5.NO FORGETTING - The Manchester Mekon6.FAIRYTALE IN THE SUPERMARKET - The RaincoatsSIDE THREE1.CAN'T CHEAT KARMA - Zounds2.BORED HOUSEWIVES - Androids Of Mu3.IN MY AREA (Take 2) - The Fall4.THE SIDEWAYS MAN - The Digital Dinosaurs5.ATTITUDES - The Good Missionaries6.THE WINDOW'S BROKEN - Human CabbagesSIDE FOUR1.KING AND COUNTRY - Television Personalities2.IN THE NIGHT - 'Exhibit A'3.NUDES - Performing Ferret Band4.DIFFERENT STORY - Tarzan 55.THE RED PULLOVER - The Gynaecologists6.PRODUCTION LINE - The Door And The Window
