...just the acquisition of music as a materialistic pursuit.
True or False?
by the acquisition of music as material objects - specificially the fetishisation of rare 7"s, almost regardless of quality.
there's no such thing as a bad northern sould record. Just songs that sound like others but aren't quite as good.
Prices would shoot up for what were pleasant but basically unremarkable records, just because one of the big DJs had found it somewhere really obscure and no-one had heard of it. It's the same mentality that made them put removable white labels on the discs whilst they were playing them.
Don't get me wrong, I adore Northern Soul, but some of the fetish element was a bit over the top.
This happens in other kinda retrospective scenes too. I know of some old skool dance heads that sell old italo disco 12"s for big $£$£$£$£$££!!!!!!
"there are no artforms now just capitalism" LOLLOLOL
pop-core scene fronted by the newly invented Automatic?
because it becomes a different proper noun . If the original scene had been British and called 'mathsrock', then the Americans should have followed suit. I think.
but it's ok for a Brit to call it math, is all.
I'm sure that'll solve your Math-based problems.
THUMP - THUMP - THUMP - THUMP
mathy ones go
A-THUMP - A-THUMP - THUMPUMPUMMPUMP *micro-pause* - A THUMP A THUMP THUMUMPUMPUMP THUMP
there are scenes goin down but they are pretty underground or just kinda diffrent due to the internet and all that.
Dance music has that comunity feel alot of the time especialy dubstep and lil sub genres.
music is about as de-materialised as it's been since the early days of the music industry..?
and as regards 'scenes', are you talking about media-created labels or groups of people? i doubt either are going away any time soon, whatever you think of them (trendwagon, local niche or mythical underground).
the only ones even close are Glasgow and Brighton.
Go to New York, LA, Montreal or Toronto if you want results.
heck my lil town has a group of about 3 or 4 producers making mad cut up break core and drum n bass stuff. Thats almost a scene hehe
London has the Grime scene and Dubstep scene. Clubs like FWD>>> Fabric all get a comunitie goin.
there will be loadsa folk ones about no doubt.
Fire colective are a jazz colective that swap members in loadsa bands like Acoustic Ladyland, Polar Bear......
I was refering to guitar based music
that seems more fragmented. I guess its cos its so huge and divers now adays. There will no doubt be lil ones in areas.
I would freakin love a a Smell scene like in LA over here that would be ace.
glasgow and brighton seem to be producing and encouraging actual talent.
the problem is though is that british people are so blaze by and wide they wouldn't care if such a scene existend and/or people would find out and try and exploit it. It's been happening since the 70's.
that all the exciting stuff is based around electronics these days.
Compare what you can do with a guitar to what is possible with a computer.
electronic tom foolery rules!
its kinda been that way since the 80s mind hehe
guitars got some catchin up to do like ;)
most scenes die the moment someone identifies them as 'a scene'?
please enlighten me!
there is also a really good one in Denver that I keep tryin to mention, but it often falls on dead ears.
