then calcification/convenience: the silliness of goth, electropop, SAW, industrial, smiths, C86, gated reverb, keyboard bass instead of real: all areas of lessening ability


Rubbish. There's load of ability there. And I don't just mean Johnny Marr's guitar playing, though if we all just just cared about musicianship, then we'd all sit at home and listen to John Williams LP's all day.

That's why I think there's more to music than musicianship. TBH I prefer SAW's way with a tune to Keith Emerson's Piano Improvisations any day.


I agree, Mr Emerson is a very gracious host with great stories, but I am not much of a progster or fusioneer.

Give me Muscle Shoals, Fame, or American studios anyday over fops in makeup prattling about their cat, playing one fingered keyboard.

Here's the irony most of the progster/fusioneers played as studio musicians on classic tunes, but most of your 80's onward players could never.
