Re: Business Schmusiness [re: JonnyManic]  

In reply to:

The amusing thing is that Morrissey is so insulated that he probably believes that he is in someway more relevant to popular music and culture than Bowie which is, frankly, utterly ludicrous.


Indeed. Morrissey obviously still has his hardcore, but outside of that he has no real relevancy these days. Bowie at least is still a household name. Only the 80s generation really remembers Morrissey these days. This was brought home to me starkly when I was chatting to my eldest son and some of his college friends one day. Typical college kids - into their music, all sorts of stuff you'd never hear on the radio or even read about in NME, and also into "classics" like Bowie, Pink Floyd, Dylan etc. Then I mentioned Morrissey. Blank faces. Who? You know, Morrissey. From The Smiths. The Smiths? I think I heard of them, but can't remember anything of theirs.

80s nostalgia is in right now, which is why Prince, Madonna, Duran Duran, Morrissey etc. now suddenly seem bigger than they have been in years. But as far as I can see, its appeal is largely limited to those of us who grew up in that decade. Unlike the 70s, which has appeal for kids who weren't even born at the time.

Slan libh,

So Levi's are called Levi's because the guy's name was Levi Strauss? Why didn't they call them strousers? - Fiona O'Kearney 6/5/2004
