disco versus the credit crunch • january sale • can disco save the world?

It’s ten years since the term credit crunch was coined, and hindsight is a wonderful thing. Back in 2008 we had what at the time seemed like the impending end of the world upon us. The collapse of the banks, the ensuing financial crisis and stock market collapse, followed by the MPs expenses scandal, tumbling house prices and the introduction of austerity guaranteed that there was no good news. The politicians foundered like fish out of water, the media rubbed their hands with glee and all in all the outlook was bleak. In an attempt to provide some optimism we created a CD per month and accompanying paraphernalia as an antidote to the dystopia. Surely things couldn’t get any worse, could they?

January Sale. Can Disco Save The World?

Disco Versus The Credit Crunch? No contest.
Picture this. The late 70s. Disco is at its peak, and we are in the winter of our discontent. There’s no petrol, everyone is on strike and most things are brown and polyester.
Tough times indeed.
Fast Forward to 2009 and we suddenly find ourselves in an equally shoddy economic state. The burning question on everyone’s lips – can something spangly save the day?
