More Info

Over three glorious, packed-to-the-brim CDs, we investigate the sounds of 1978 as the original punk template fractured into a dazzling day-glo riot of sub-genres: new wave, post-punk, proto-Oi, power-pop, punk poets, the mod revival, ska-punk, synth oriented electronic/industrial music and a whole load of additional noises.

Housed in a capacity wallet, 1978: The Year The UK Turned Day-Glo includes a 48-page booklet that includes the lowdown on every track. Loaded with vim and vigour, it’s another essential purchase for anyone with even a passing interest in the British music scene of the late Seventies.
