 Following both last year’s Matt Sewell curated comp “A Crushing Glow” (a Lauren Laverne 6 Music Album of the Week) & 2012’s very highly regarded “Fame”, a definitive UK/US Post-Punk release. Jon Savage and CTR decided to tackle a seemingly seriously under-documented musical era, the “Baggy” era of the late Eighties/early Nineties.

We are very proud to present a musical return-trip to these fondly remembered years spanning 1988-93. Tracks are 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”. Jon has also worked on the recently published “So This is Permanence: The Lyrics Of Ian Curtis”, which he co-edited with Deborah Curtis.

 

 Jon posits this period as a return to Psychedelia. Its second phase, where Guitars met Acid-House to create a whole new noise..

 A thrilling musical time, as Jon explains within his extensive sleeve-notes:

 “Many of the records come from that first surge, alongside key tracks by 808 State, the Stone Roses & Pet Shop Boys as well as left-field offerings by Joi and Dimensional Holofonic Sound - and three tracks with the involvement of the UK's presiding genius from this period, Andrew Weatherall.”

 

“This is not intended as a definitive survey, more a snapshot of those times”.

 It was a period where clothes, drugs, music and key events including the Stone Roses at Spike Island created a major cultural confluence. From Trip & Shoom in London to Manchester Hacienda and beyond.. As Jon suggests the era was vital as it heralded:

 “The start of the electronic music boom that would flourish during the Nineties “
