Ok, so I happened to be listening to "Anarchy in the U.K." today, and I started thinking: man why isn't there any new music emerging at least as groundbreaking as the Sex Pistols. We have all the ingredients don't we? Turmoil. Malaise. Heck, there's even a new baby boom. C'mon kids, is the best that could come out of the new baby boom Britney and N'Sync? Oh yeah, now the kids are branching out to Avril Lavigne By all rights we should be due for something big. The last exciting period in music was the early 90's which saw the emergence of grunge ("Smells Like Teen Spirit" set the seminal moment), gangsta rap ("F*** the Police" was the seminal moment), and a little bit later the beginnings of drum n' bass / trip-hop (not sure what the seminal monent is here, I caught on to it quite late). So what's the next big thing? Am I just missing it 'cause I'm an old fuddy-duddy? The only really new thing going on here in NYC is Electroclash, which is electro/techno music with a Bowie-esque decadent/androgynous style (or, alternatively post-punk new-wave/Romantic style, they're rather similar). I personally don't like it, though - the whole scene seems rather pretentious. What else is going on out there in the music world?
