To underline Tate Britain’s trailblazing Women in Revolt! Art, Activism and the Women’s movement in the UK 1970 –1990 exhibition, this vinyl compilation record has been curated to further reveal the music and sound art that women musicians were creating during this artistic and societal paradigm shift. The music that defines and defied this era, not only soundtracked but spurred on increasingly impassioned creative output and representation for women. Bands included on the compilation, like X-Ray Spex and The Slits, remain front of mind for bands espousing this robust stance both sonically and politically. Equally impactful artists such as Ludus also feature, whose lead singer Linder Sterling impacted the genre with her radical feminist visual artwork and music. 

A neon yellow 180 gram vinyl with printed inner, the LP tracklist was compiled collaboratively between Linsey Young, Curator of Contemporary British Art at Tate Britain, and Julie Weir, Head of Music for Nations.

Women In Revolt! is an exhibition of work by over 100 women artists working in the UK during the 1970s and 80s. In a first of its kind showing, it explores how women used radical ideas and rebellious methods to change the face of British culture. With music, painting, sculpture, photography, film, and performance, they forged a path for women’s liberation in the UK, against a backdrop of extreme social change.
