Song of the Week for August 9, 2018

Our song of the week comes from (I think the first we picked) a Turkish band. They’re called “She Past Away” the song is called SOLUK. They’re clearly influenced by the first wave of Gothic bands from the late 70’s and early 80’s. Bauhaus comes to mind right off the bat, but they’ve definitely created a sound that is uniquely their own. You can learn more about the band on their website at https://shepastaway.org/

Past Music Trivia Posts

Just over 36 years ago local Rochester NY newspaper The Democrat & Chronicle asked their readers “What’s the matter with kids Today” ? And the clear problem was this scourge on society called “New Wave Music”. A huge profile in the Sunday Paper supplement section “Upstate” from June 14, 1981. As you can see in this thorough investigation of to this strange new style of music, graphics and even more bizarre fashion, what possible hope could society have. As demonstrated by lyric excerpts from songs by The Ramones & The Dead Kennedys the youth of today is lost. The article features lots of local celebrities including Lisa Marcussi, Babs Gordon, Michael Swart, Duncan Walls, Joe Turri, Michael Houser “Nails Guile”, Plus Jeff Laben & Tim Schaffer of local band “The Cliches” and Roy Stein, Kevin Patrick and Chris Yackol of local band “New Math”. Also mentioned is some record store called “Lakeshore Record Exchange” (whatever that was).
