    surely no one is suggesting theres any better dub in some other decade. that would be mental talk.

    I think the barrier moves back and becomes more porous as you get older.

    Nick Kimberley who did one of the first reggae zines in the uk now reviews classical records.

    Also there are always obsessives who groove to rockabilly, swing, show tunes etc.

    it's sort of about how far back you can time travel. it's not a question of 'old records i dont like' it's about where you can't get in there and live in it.

    What does “living” in a 70s dub LP mean?

    whats a record? it's not a free floating hermetically sealed self-referential artifact detached from time and space. it contains information. it is a product of specific individuals, a specific cultural and historical moment etc etc. it communicates. it represents. it enacts.

    most baroque and romantic music. can't stand it. so twee. i only start to like classical when it gets more textural than the pleasing harmonies.

    a lot of 80s hip hop sounds really primitive to my ears but i'm hesitant to mention it as i get a DiY punk feeling from it that i've never got from the punk genre (excluding the weirder ends of postpunk.)

    80s metal is so overblown but i've kinda come round to the conclusion that i don't really like metal anymore, i mean not in the way a metalhead would like it. i like noisy, angular and atonal shit, only time screamed vocals make sense to me.

    Check Cluster. Check Conrad Schnitzler. first ash ra temple album. most of erkin koray's discography, Omar Khorshid, Kourosh Yaghmaie, real organic effortless psychedelia. Gentle Giant, Van Der Graaf and yes have their moments. as does King Crimson. Some Italian prog like Area, Banco Del Mutuo Soccorso, Il Balletto Di Bronzo. How could i forget Henry Cow. The Misunderstood. Les Rallizes Dénudés.
