In this vein, is the announcement that 'American Idol' is to end next year significant?

This genre has dominated music (in the USA, UK, everywhere.... :roll: ) for the past fifteen years. And has put the bland into the centre of public consciousness.

:idea: Maybe it is not so much that we await 'a great new artist', but the fact that this generic genre is to go, clears the way for a different scene. And hopefully a more creative one that succeeds on its own organic terms.

Or am I being a dreamer....? :mrgreen:



I didn't know about American Idol is ending! Awesome! I believe you are being a dreamer.... I just don't believe any sustaining new genre will evolve..... It seems technology has all about ruined it opposed to being a major boon!

That is what I suspect.

Corporate life will probably dictate it anyway, whatever happens. :x

Agreed...it's been that way for the past 20-years...what's going to suddenly change that? It would have to be some radical extreme musical movement, but unfortunately there are no complete unified fronts anymore for that to ever happen again!

Music has become entwined with other strands of life. It does not exist on its own terms.

Maybe only an unforeseen event that destabilised corporate globalism could totally re-invigorate music to stand on its own?

E.g. 'the Rock Era' (mid 50s - mid 80s) and all that it brought (rock n roll, beat boom, heavy rock, new wave, synth pop etc) was a consequence of the UK (& Europe, USA) emerging from the aftermath of World War Two.

I thought 9/11 here in the States could have lead to that w/the Middle Wars...It influenced quite a few bands, but that wasn't completely sustained...

It will have to be something underground that evolves..or perhaps something even more scaled-back, lo-fi....vintage....

Any fans of latter period Talk Talk / Mark Hollis I'm sure will love the new Lone Wolf album 'Lodge'. It has all of the Hollis hallmarks....very beautiful and sparse. It's a really great record, and he deserves a bigger audience (he is on his arse financially).

I actually love his voice, but we're obviously entitled to our own opinion...What is he like as a person?

That's awesome though...... I've seem them in concert twice (both times in small venues) and they seemed like a solid bunch of individuals.....

Going back to Talk Talk...how did all of you become interested in them in the first place? For me it was just seeing them on MTV all throughout the 80s.....

I love how I always set out to play a few songs from The Colour of Spring but end up playing the entire thing. Like just then for the umpteenth time. 8-)
