Ok, sat here watching UKTV gold, TOTP 2 and am listening to Stone Roses, Dr Hook, Rose Royce, Soft Cell etc. I started thinking to myself 'have we arrived at a period of musical excellance on par with the cullinary delights of McDonalds'? Gangsta Rap, non descript chav bands, 'winners of TV pop idol bands', some cnut 'remixing' dull dance anthems on a PC et al. Does anyone know who the feck No1 in the hit parade (sorry 'charts') is and does anyone care? Have the days of your sister proping her dodgy microphone from her cassette deck against the wireless on a Sunday evening, taping the charts, ensuring she clicked the pause button whilst the DJ does his 'countdown' gone?? Is the time rife for another 'Sex Pistols' style reality check of the music industry? (S'funny that the Yanks didnt seem to get the irony of 'Punk' and actually took it as a serious passage in music history). PS Have also just dug out a dusty C90 cassette from the servants quarters with the 'top 20, 1979' on it. Was funny to hear the end of 'Message in a bottle' by the Police with a nano second of Dave Lee Travis introducing the next song just prior to the 'Pause button being pressed.
