Here's something visual to go with whats been posted on some excellent blogs recently. Go to the CHECK OUT THESE ! list to yer left and go through it. They're just a click away, you'll find the ones I'm talkin' about. The 80's were a time of a truly divided nation, when music really was 'alternative' and 'independent' didn't mean being dependent on Sony. Subcultures ruled; anarcho-punk, Oi, Goth, Post-Punk, Positive Punk. Each with a distinct look that wasn't available off the rail at Top Shop. CND, Anti-Nazi League, Red Wedge, Stop The City etc ruled the streets. Margaret Thatcher was in power with her extreme economic policies, which have left us in the mess we are now, individuals rule, the collective has been consumed, and at times it feels like there is 'no society.' It's down to us all to start creating a new society, we all have a part to play where ever we are, however old we are, in the search for a new global sensibility. So keep on keeping on: Higlander,Annie, Slobodan, John, Curious, Fritz. To you the readers, start spreading the word and listen to some good musik while yer doing it, because, WE ARE NOT ALONE !
