Retromania with Simon Reynolds

March 4, 2012

This last decade has produced no real new music styles, subcultures and genres. That seems to be the conclusion in one of the worlds most influential music writers, Simon Reynolds, new book: Retromania.

He visited by:Larm to present his book in a Q&A with Audun Vinger, editor of Vinduet.

Punk, post-punk, rave, hip hop and rap, it’s all part of today’s museum acts on stage, where new artist’s presents us with an archive of references. Nothing new.

Could we end up in a scenario were cover bands do the whole lifeline of a band, both visually and musically, with cover band members leaving stage as they were sacked / quitted / died in real life?

The future opportunities are endless…
