Rock School

On my endless odyssey through the internet once more I tumbled over an episode of Rock School, and once more I wondered about the cheesy sounds that had been so hot in the 80s.

Today it makes me smile but of course every era of pop music requires it’s predecessors. For example dance and electronic music would not sound the same if the technical development would have taken another way. The 80s had created highlights as well as catastrophes concerning sound (this may appear to style and clothes as well…). I wonder what my kids will think about a Roland TD20 in 15 years (to be honest: I already think they are antiquated and a deception of high technology, but this should be discussed in other blogs)

In any case: Have fun watching this nice peace of TV history!

    I love “cheesy” sounds… I’m sampling a DX7 (1983) to a Roland S-550 (1987) right now… And saving it all on some 720Kb diskettes 😀
