Interviewing the original archeological pioneers complete with pickaxe handle and miners lamp, the originators are revealed in the glare. Rockabilly, Surf Hot Rod, Exotica, the weird and the obscure are firstly charged with electric before they are watered and allowed out to greet the throng.
Wandering with iron boots, they eventually place their hands on the throat of moderne merdiocrity and slowly1 Strangle it gently, allowing it one last breath....sorry for being banal...eeuchhh.
Modern cultures eventual demise could be greeted with tickertape cheers. Except it has created a vast swathe of torpor.
Meanwhile the ashes of the past resurrected, jitterbugs, jives and twists a vision for the new.
Into the blender, locked within the bowels of Room 101 goes corporate chump rock, blandboozling rhythm n beats, maudlin self obsessed minger songwriters, zzzz Factor manufacture, music by numbers and drafted over production. You know, the obvious.
Parading their lithe nude bodies by the pool of life are the demons of clasique, jazz, soul, rnb, 60's punk, 70' punk, industrial, exotica, the gauche, the experi-mental, the outre, the indigenous and the weird.
All now frolicing in the bath of the new world disorder.
Go get em tiger!
