would that be?
The decade that gave us at least 5 totally new genres with whole new ways of thinking about and making music?
Starting with Hip-hop, house, acid, techno and the unstoppable rise of all genres electronic.
The KLF, Orb, Future Sound of London, Aphex Twin and on and on and on.
Where were you?
Certainly not bouncing up and down in a field with a massive shit-eating grin on your face dancing like a loon to brain-bending sounds until dee morning come.
If you were into your bleeps, it was an impossibly exciting time in music, a time when I regularly heard records that made me think: I didn't know you were allowed to do THAT with a tune!
Yer well within your rights to hate all of that, but music didn't forget the 80s: you just had your earplugs in.
Sheesh, wotta grouch.
(quite like Nick Cave. He's good.)
