2023 collection. There was plenty of genuine discontent in Britain at the tail end of the 1970s, and it had little to do with bin strikes or dark rumors about overflowing morgues. In the world of popular music, the most liberating after-effect of the Sex Pistols was that anyone with something to say now felt they could make a 7" single. Winter Of Discontent is the sound of truly DIY music, made by people who maybe hadn't written a song until a day or two before they went into the studio. It's spontaneous and genuinely free in a way the British music scene has rarely been before or since. 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. Includes tracks by Scritti Politti, TV Personalities, the Fall, Exhibit A, Digital Dinosaurs, Frankie's Crew, and many others.
