Following on from 2012’s acclaimed “Fame” Post-Punk & 2015's "Perfect Motion" Psychedel-ic-Baggy 1988-93 compilations on CTR, Jon Savage decided to focus upon Electronic music from the Post-Punk era 1978-82. He suggests in his liner-notes for the album:
“Disco was a grid you could pour anything into. Its robotic imperatives thread their way through this collection” & Jon describing the album as:
“Spanning Euro Disco to very early Electro and the classic period of High Energy, taking in mainstream Disco, the strange, minimal and avant garde on the way, these fifteen tracks celebrate the fertility and the futurism of synthesiser electronics in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s”
This compilation is selected and curated by renowned cultural commentator, writer and film-maker Jon Savage. Amongst many highly revered projects Jon has produced the definitive work on Punk Rock in “England's Dreaming” and the documentary & book “Teenage” The Creation of Youth, 1875 - 1945. He is also the biographer of Joy Division & author of the top 10 Sunday Times best seller "This Searing Light, The Sun & Everything Else" The Oral History Of Joy Division in 2019.
Includes rare tracks & full length 12" versions. Perfect for DJs..
