“A positive reaction to a difficult world”
Welcome to the Generation Blitz compilation featuring thirty-four prime cuts from the frontline of today’s 1979 – 81 electronic post punk/ synthpop inspired global underground.
Featuring exclusive songs and remixes alongside classic tracks, Generation Blitz brings together many of the most exciting names from the global electronic music scenes inspired by the Blitz Club era. The collection includes overt homage alongside creative deconstruction of some of the sounds and styles of the period. The set moves from sophisticated synth pop classics to electronic new wave floorfillers and takes in minimal electronic synth punk and outsider post punk along the way. These are the sounds of a global scene that is an open space for all genders, sexualities, ethnicities, ages and abilities.
Generation Blitz will be released as a double CD and cassette via Bandcamp and the label website as well as the usual streaming sites. Physical copies will be accompanied by a 7” square magazine with introductions to the artists, the highly influential radio shows that have nurtured this community over the years and essays on the cultural impact of that original Generation Blitz.
Generation Blitz – reclaiming the 1980s from Stranger Things cosplayers, neon obsessives and Miami Vice nostalgics.
Generation Blitz was compiled by Martin James (Nostalgia Deathstar) and Timo Jalkanen (Montage Collective) with support from Gary Fones.
The compilers and artists are available for interview. For more info about the album and links to any of the artists please contact: [email protected]
