If 1977 was the year that punk broke, and 1978 saw the UK turn Day-Glo, then 1979 was all about the aftershock of punk, with the redrawn British musical landscape divided between various youth sub-cultures and factions. The release of the film Quadrophenia gave a focal point to the growing mod revival, power pop bands like The Jags similarly sought inspiration from the mid-'60s, while 2-Tone recalibrated the ska sound of Prince Buster for a new generation of pork pie hat-wearing rude boys. Running parallel to those developments, a plethora of bands - prominent among whom were Public Image Ltd, Siouxsie And The Banshees, The Fall and Joy Division - were demanding the future now with an uncompromising sound and nonconformist approach that would subsequently be labelled post-punk. They were joined by the likes of The Human League and Tubeway Army, who brought avant-garde electronic influences and dystopian lyrical themes into the pop charts. With the more mainstream Spirit-of-'77 bands now rebranded by the radio-friendly marketing term New Wave, 1979 turned out to be an epic pot-pourri of sounds and styles. The likes of Madness, Echo And The Bunnymen, The Teardrop Explodes, Pretenders and Dexy's Midnight Runners all made their vinyl debuts, while the singles chart boasted instant three-minute classics from The Jam, The Clash, The Skids, Squeeze, The Ruts, XTC and The Undertones. Naturally enough, all of the aforementioned bands are represented on 'Revolt Into Style' alongside more obscure 7" gems and a smattering of key album tracks from some of the most important long-players of the year: Joy Division, The Fall, Madness, Tubeway Army and Ian Dury's eagerly-awaited follow-up to 'New Boots And Panties'.
