Sometimes the sound of collapse and things falling apart makes absolute sense. It certainly did then. ("Ahhh...verité, at last.") Of course, the culture was far more mono- in those days. "Mono" as in -lithic, monopolizing all of the discursive channels and crowding most everything else out of the room. Finding something that might've actually meant or said something to you wasn't so easily done and required diligence on the part of the hungry and the bored.

High school music -- mine, anwyay. Ugh, was I ever so young? Most people's taste in music during those formative years largely sucks, anyway; and I'm certain that I was no exception in that respect. But I guess it beat listening to REO Speedwagon.

Still, it's stuff that undoubtedly warped my aesthetic sensibilities for life. The vintage here mostly being (I think) between 1979-1983, with the selection including what might seem to some like obvious choices.

As before: Short shelf-life on the active link.
