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.
TOTP is on now.1985 like.
Shite year. It was all over by 84.
Yep.I reckon 77-84. Suppose Britpop was decent but nowt since.
house music all night long
theres been absolutely nowt since that britpop era in the middish 90s, bit weird really
Great era for music.............where are today's Weller, Strummer, Smith, Difford&Tilbrook.......I could go on.
Feel sorry for the kids of today....i know its cliched but music today is utter turd.
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
May as well have been called, "I'm shaggin' her you know."
There’s was a good era around 2004-7 indie’s last golden period.
And The Jam, Pink Floyd and Madness.
The Clash and the Stranglers both released brilliant albums in 1979 and let's not forget both Joy Division masterpieces came out 79-80
1955- till Mick Jones departed The Clash.
