bob stanley & pete wiggs present: three day week - when the lights went out 1972-1975



Released: 29th Mar 2019


deluxe 180g gatefold clear 2lp

Released: 29th Mar 2019


Another absolutely killer compilation from bob Stanley and pete wiggs that draws lines between hawkwind, lieutenant pigeon and the kinks all in the name of charting a divided Britain.

Cast your mind back to 1973 - The bright new colours of the post-war Festival of Britain and Harold Wilson’s talk in the 60s of the “white heat of technology” now seemed very distant as strikes, inflation, and food and oil shortages laid Britain low. What had gone wrong? And what did pop music have to say about it? With perfect timing this album soundtracks Britain on the brink of chaos.
