The Discontented was primarily inspired by Virginia Nicholson's study of those who rebelled against Victorian lifestyles and values in early 20th-century London, Among the Bohemians: Experiments in Living.  Real-life experiences were woven into the lyrics as it evolved, but much of the imagery protrayed derives from the semi-infamous characters depicted by Ms. Nicholson.  Check out an interview with this author here on BBC radio 4.

Many thanks to Larry (acoustic guitar on tracks 1, 2 &5) and Joyce (vocals on tracks 1, 2, 5, 6 & 7) for some extra special additions; almost the Dayglo Anglos! Also many thanks to Steve Glaze of Tone Freq Studio who mastered all the tracks.
