50 YEARS PAST

To celebrate the end of a year to forget (2020) let's take a look at the end of a good year in music, 1970. From the blues/rock of Johnny Winter and Derek & The Dominoes to the beginnings of jazz/rock fusion with Miles Davis and Soft Machine, it was a good year indeed. Join me for two hours worth on Tuesday January 26 from 5-7pm to listen and enjoy. Forward....Into the Past......

Idles: They are NOT a punk band.

At least according to singer Joe Talbot on numerous occasions. However, there is a reason he has made this declaration on numerous occasions, many outlets and fans often slap genre titles on them like punk, post-punk, post-hardcore, etc. So maybe there is a reason for this. The band's bigger tracks are often up tempo and loud rock tracks with raucous vocals reminiscent of UK street punk outfits like The Exploited (in their early years, think Dead Cities) if they were singing.
