A mixed 5 years...

"I put this together after hearing the essential DJ Chaos Live Mixxx (Yamataka Eye); the JD Twitch’s CD compilation that accompanied his 10 Inches of Fear re-edits; and having Fergus “Fergadelic” Purcell play me a great Modern English tune from 1980 (included at the end of this selection). All reminded me of a time when the 1970s turned into the 1980s and UK punk rock turned into something different. This selection is mostly British (all but one tune) and spans 5 years from 1978-1983. It was a dark time in the UK as Thatcher took hold of the reigns of power. Let the dirge commence."
