Description

The Strut label returns, celebrating its re-launch in January 2008 through !K7 with a brand new edition of one of the imprint’s most in-demand series, DISCO NOT DISCO, exploring original anthems and rarities from the world of reactionary 1970s post-punk and leftfield disco.

With the original two compilations released at the turn of the decade as a new wave of bands like The Rapture and LCD Soundsystem drew on the music’s influence, DISCO NOT DISCO has since been adopted in its own right as a term to describe a whole genre. The compilation is more timely than ever in 2008 as a reference point for a burgeoning mainstream scene.

The new edition moves from New York classics by Konk and Bill Laswell’s Material to early Detroit machine music, Belgian New Beat and a healthy dose of UK originals from Shriekback, Quando Quango and more on seminal labels like Y and Factory. Watch out too for rare gems from unexpected sources including Gina X and ’70s prog collective Isotope.

DISCO NOT DISCO is packaged in a deluxe digipak with full booklet featuring sleevenotes by Bill Brewster, author of ‘Last Night A DJ Saved My Life’, extensive track by track notes and rare photos.
