disco versus the credit crunch july • this is the future (i have very bad news)

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?

DISCO TAPS INTO THE PULSE OF THE NATION THROUGH TIRED CLICHÉS.

In the words of young Mr Grace; “You’ve all done very well!”
