Isn't it great that disco is in vogue again? After becoming demonised in the 70s in a violent fashion, disco seems to return every eight years or so, kicking and screaming, refusing to die. But is it a good thing disco is 'trendy' again? When people get into a frenzy to renounce all other forms of music and suddenly pledge allegiance to a groove, just to have their finger on the pulse rather than for love, it kinda sucks. And the originators who beavered away quietly and passionately when it wasn't fashionable, look on, mouths agape as the masses climb on board.
I blame the media and those pesky taste makers. When disco was declared dead by the press those scenes went back underground and wonderful things happened away from the probing glare of the media eye. My point being? Don't listen to the media! They meddle, they interfere and they get it oh so wrong. Remember 'dance music is dead' a few years back? If they say something is dead breathe life back into the rotting corpse.
If they say something is 'in' you know that means it will be dead in 3 months. Sucked dry and over exposed by the press. Save time and destroy whatever is 'in fashion' immediately. Why wait for the media to knock it down first?
Above all, do not listen to ANYTHING you read in magazines or on the internet... ANYTHING... DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS. We are not to be trusted and only want control of your tiny little minds. And while we are here, may we take a mortgage out on your souls? We hear prices are falling rapidly.
