    The TB-303 is a classic part of house music.

    It was the death of house. Acid was an abomination.

    House never died did it?
    You could say it was a shit genre of house from your point of view but it didn't kill anything.

    Spot on.

    Listen to a song like ‘Serpentine Fire’ by Earth Wind and Fire.

    There’s guitar, bass, drums, keyboards, percussion, brass, strings, harmonies. There’s and intro, bridge, verse, chorus, breakdown, middle eight, outro etc.

    Now you switch on the drum machine. Switch on the sequencer. Lock in an eight note loop. Blather some inane lyrics through auto tune so you sound like Steven Hawking, repeat for four minutes and fade out. Bingo, you’re done.

    Nowt can compete with 66-70 like. Have a look at any week's top 20 chart and there will be at least 5 classics in there.

    Wonder if we will say the same about today's music in 50 years?

    You've called this about right old son - there was decent stuff in 77-78 and 83-84 but 79-82 were amazing years - 79 especially - even the stuff that seemed decidedly average at the time sounds amazing now, people like Costello, Dury, Lowe, Edmunds, Blondie, XTC , Police, Joe Jackson, The Skids in the charts and the Indy stuff bubbling under - it was an amazing period - 75% of the chart stuff was decent - by 81-82 all of the indy stuff from 79 was mainstream and TOTP was a real experience - it started going downhill from 83 and apart from Madchester and Britpop there's been sweet FA since

    The Clash and the Stranglers both released brilliant albums in 1979 and let's not forget both Joy Division masterpieces came out 79-80 ;)
