When did you last consider music to be on the inside?

Since Bowie refers it being on the Outside, I'm taking this as meaning outside the charts.

When did you stop listening to anything in the charts?

For me it would have been late 90's. Probably around the time that boy bands and crap rap came in and took over the place.

EDIT: though of course, generally speaking the best music has always been on the outside.

LOL! Oh, please wink.gif

I guess around the same time as you Brian, I've never given it a thought tell the truth.

Coming home the other day in a taxi from Morrisons and the cab driver has Radio 1 belting out! I couldn't understand any of it??? A horrible noise.

I'm exposed to quite a bit of the new stuff from when I go to the gym. The telly's are always showing some music channel or it's KISS FM. Neither really to my taste.

Made me realise that every week it's new artists, each week their careers are over. Until the next generic faceless "artist" takes over

I still think this is one of the main reasons Bowie dropped out of the music business.

He had the best of times and now it's the worst of times.

probably Ant, He probably felt it's no longer an enjoyable experience. Maybe he does record music but he just plays it to friends and family.

Bowie meltdown

June 29 2012, 3:13 PM 

I stopped listening to chart music in the late 80's when I discovered Lisa Gerrard, Cocteau Twins and the 4ad bunch. From then on, the only commercial music I would buy is a Bowie album in hoping it would be his best since Scary Monsters (LOL), you heard that before I suppose,.
My greatest disappointment must have been Never Lead let me Down, I couldn't believe my ears.
Tonight still had that Bowie God like aura on it but NLMD was not only pop music but amateurish pop music, I don't think David had the knack in choosing producers in those times.
One wonders how it would have been if he had stuck with Nile Rodgers during the 80's, what wonders !

P.

the day the music industry died

July 1 2012, 1:10 PM 

I gave up back around 1987 when the music industry basically said FU to anyone who owned a record album. The final straw was when they even got radio shack to stop selling and making record needles.

So basically I stopped spending my cash for anything music industry related around that time and never again bought a ticket to a concert. If I do go the tickets are given to me...I won't spend the $$$.

I'm sure I've missed a lot or cool Rock and Roll but with YouTube I can relive it all for free.

And it brings me great pleasure when I hear artists cry about not making any $$ because the fans are ripping music off the internet. Screw you like you screwed all of us music fans many years ago. What comes around goes around.

Lilly flash back in anger brinker

I think I stopped to listen to anything in the charts after beeing 18 years old for 3 reasons.

studies + jobs = less time to listen to everything, you must selected

older + wiser = quality is more important than quantity

video killed radio stars = changes in our society, radios were important to discover new artists, now it's internet

I remember the rave reviews at the time Del.
Woke me up to the fact that the music press,as per the regular press,are bandwagon jumpers.
