Culture Notes: More 80's Style

Posted by Colleen Shirazi, Thursday, August 30, 2007 3:51 PM (Eastern)

"Ello, I'm Gizzard Puke, mugger to the gentry, and anyone who says punk's dead, will be."

"This morning, I spilled coffee all over my wife's dressing gown! Serves me right for wearing it!"

"Me faddah ust'a yell at me so much when I was a kid, I ust'a think me name was 'Shaddup!'"

Hm, looks like someone took down the Kenny Everett Show video I posted earlier. So here is a fresh new 80's video, of one of my favorite U2 songs.

U2 Hattem 1982 - Another Time, Another Place

I haven't actually liked U2 since The Joshua Tree, unless you count "Angel of Harlem." Very few rock bands should, imo, continue playing when they get old. Rock requires the sheer kinetic energy of youth, the ability to run up hills, to stay up three nights in a row, and to be optimistic that things can change.

I still recall Boy as influential however, as genuinely different and almost freakishly good. Perhaps it's all in the drummer, or in the rough lyrics, that uncannily captured the dark shadows of youth, when you caught glimpses of things that didn't make sense at the time.

I'm running in the rain
I'm caught in a late night play
It's all; it's everything
I'm soaking through the skin

Twilight...darkened day
Twilight...lost my way
Twilight...night and day
Twilight...can't find my way
