The ... who?

According to the Washington Post (via the awesome Stereogum) the latest new music craze for kids is... old music. Yes, that's right - Led Zeppelin, The Doors, The Who, Jethro Tull (ok, maybe not the last one.) But apparently it's all making a comeback and they have some sort of figures involving radio listenership and iTunes downloads to prove it.

I'm most likely one of the demographic the Post is talking about - my last two CD purchases were the following excellent albums:




One was made this year. The other is approaching its fortieth anniversary. Forty years! Think of the things that have happened in forty years. Why on earth would I buy a CD that has no relevance to my time and space at all?

The answer is pretty simple really - good music will always be good music.

Last CD I bought: Kate Bush, Aerial.

A combination of new and old. New Music, in an old style by an old artist.

10 Years from now, Aerial will still be around, even if kate bush isn't.

Good music will live on
