ACCEPTABLE IN THE EIGHTIES 22: THE MIDDLE GROUND

Copyright Disclaimer Under Section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976, allowance is made for "fair use" for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching and research. Fair use is permitted by copyright statute.


In the Sixties it was "Easy Listening", the Seventies, "Middle of the Road". The Eighties (at least in the USA) saw the smoother, more mainstream, more grown up pop music re-categorised as "Adult Contemporary". And it was a fairly broad genre, taking in soft rock, jazz-pop, soul, country and power ballads as the Mums and Dads would often beat their offspring to the punch at the Woolworths singles store...


Featuring Christopher Cross, George Benson, Julio Iglesias, Lionel Richie, Kenny Rogers & Dolly Parton, Billy Ocean, Chris de Burgh, Bill Medley & Jennifer Warnes and Linda Ronstadt & Aaron Neville. What Smooth FM is all about these days...

ACCEPTABLE IN THE EIGHTIES 21: SYNTH-POP

Copyright Disclaimer Under Section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976, allowance is made for "fair use" for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching and research. Fair use is permitted by copyright statute.

With the BBC now jumping on the 80s bandwagon, here we present the genre chiefly associated with those times. Synth-pop developed throughout the 1970s and was often written off as something of a novelty. But this futurist vision finally hit paydirt at the turn of the decade, with the likes of Gary Numan, The Human League* et al riding the wave. As with all trends, Synth-pop lost its lustre eventually. However, by the 2020s, Synth-pop has revived again, as the recent mega-smash from The Weeknd has amply demonstrated. But here is the original analogue sound in all it's glory...


Featuring Gary Numan, John Foxx, Ultravox, Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, Kraftwerk, Heaven 17, Bronski Beat, Harold Faltermeyer and Pet Shop Boys.


*They featured in the related programme regarding electronica across the whole decade.

ACCEPTABLE IN THE EIGHTIES 20: MEGASTARS

Copyright Disclaimer Under Section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976, allowance is made for "fair use" for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching and research. Fair use is permitted by copyright statute.

It could be argued that the 1980s were the commercial peak for pop music as a medium with the attendant spin-offs and paraphernalia all combining at the same time: The average pop consumer could buy vinyl, cassettes and compact discs. There was the arrival and rise of the pop video format. Hollywood were still interested in making films starring pop stars. Plus there was the wide media attention from TV, magazines and newspapers. And then there were the concert tours. This was the age of the megastar, most notably the "Big Three" of Michael Jackson, Madonna and Prince. Not surprisingly these acts were big because they appealed to a wide audience and because they made the most of the varied media that surrounded pop in a way that hasn't quite been repeated since...


Featuring performances from Phil Collins, The Police, Michael Jackson, Tina Turner, Madonna, Bruce Springsteen, Prince and the Revolution, David Bowie and Whitney Houston.

ACCEPTABLE IN THE EIGHTIES 19: NEO-PSYCHEDLELIA

Copyright Disclaimer Under Section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976, allowance is made for "fair use" for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching and research. Fair use is permitted by copyright statute.

The 1960s was at it least fashionable in the 1980s, so typically those on the fringes of the music scene at the time gravitated towards it. The main strand taken from the era was the jangly, psyche sounds played by garage bands such as the 13th Floor Elevators, art rock pioneers The Velvet Underground (who were the name to drop for any self-respecting hipster teen in the mid-80s - ask my brother!) and more established Byrds. In Britain, post-punk bands The Soft Boys and The Teardrop Explodes started the revival and this continued in the US via the "Paisley Underground" before the movement collided with the Balearic beat, which opened up a whole new avenue...


Featuring The Church, The Dream Syndicate, Butthole Surfers, Julian Cope, The Bangles, The Rain Parade, The Long Ryders, Primal Scream and The Stone Roses.

NORM MACDONALD 1959 - 2021

Farewell to the ol' chunk of coal..

Norm Macdonald was arguably Canada's finest stand-up comedian. Though still probably best known un the United States for his stint on Saturday Night Live from 1993-98, he maintained a presence on the comedy scene and was well respected for his idiosyncratic, deadpan style which often masked a razor-sharp intellect. Sad irony for me is that back in the summer, I was considering topics other than pop music to cover and considered Macdonald to be a worthy subject, so here's my tribute. RIP Norm...

ACCEPTABLE IN THE EIGHTIES 18: HIP-HOP THE EARLY YEARS

Copyright Disclaimer Under Section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976, allowance is made for "fair use" for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching and research. Fair use is permitted by copyright statute.

Rather like Rock and Roll in the 50s, Hip-Hop (or Hip hop) was often dismissed as a flash in the pan, but it was only getting started. Emerging from the ghetto communities in New York, the genre broke through into the mainstream just as the 80s were starting. The first wave of "old skool" Hip hop had a more celebratory vibe than later incarnations but not without giving an insight onto the poverty and racism that was prevalent within the African-American community. With some established artists offering support, Hip hop rose in popularity among music fans and by the decades end was becoming a force to be reckoned with...


Featuring performances from Kurtis Blow, Grandmaster Flash n' the Furious Five, Malcolm McLaren, Run-D.M.C., L L Cool J, Beastie Boys, Salt n' Pepa, Public Enemy and De La Soul.

KEVIN AYERS: MOONLIGHT'S LOST DISCIPLE

Copyright Disclaimer Under Section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976, allowance is made for "fair use" for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching and research. Fair use is permitted by copyright statute

This a profile on Kevin Ayers, a hugely talented songwriter who emerged from the "Canterbury Scene" of the the late 1960s with the pioneering psychedelic band The Soft Machine. Ayers struck out on his own idiosyncratic career from 1969 until his death in 2013. It has been suggested that Ayers never fulfilled his potential. That might be very true commercially but artistically his output is arguably as good as any other solo UK artist of the post-Beatles, pre-punk era of UK pop/rock music. Amongst the art-rock tomfoolery of wine, women and bananas (?), there is an honesty in his songwriting, where many of his ilk were more content to hide behind various personas and constructs. Enjoy.

ACCEPTABLE IN THE EIGHTIES 3: AUSTRALIA (Re-up)

Copyright Disclaimer Under Section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976, allowance is made for "fair use" for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching and research. Fair use is permitted by copyright statute

As the Land of Oz moved towards the bicentenary of it's discovery, the nation's cultural profile was raised considerably. With the likes of Mel Gibson and Paul Hogan making it big in Hollywood and Australian dramas dominating British TV schedules, the Eighties was a fine time to be an Aussie. They even won the America's Cup! Australia did pretty well in the pop world too as you'll see...


Featuring performances from Olivia Newton-John, Joe Dolce Music Theatre, Icehouse, Men At Work, AC/DC, INXS, The Go-Betweens, Mental As Anything and Kylie Minogue.

ACCEPTABLE IN THE EIGHTIES 2: SOPHISTI-POP (re-upload)

Copyright Disclaimer Under Section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976, allowance is made for "fair use" for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching and research. Fair use is permitted by copyright statute

"Sophisti-pop" is a retrospective term, much like the US's "Yacht Rock" and like it's cross-Atlantic counterpart, there was a definite aspirational tinge to the music during the most aspirational decade of the lot. It was stylish and smooth, arty but not too arty. There was a political dimension too, with some of the acts firmly leaning to the left despite the target audience being arguably not of the proletarian kind. The thing that one remembers from this movement, such as it was that there was a lot of industry hype surrounding many of the acts featured. It was "fashionable" but as ever thus, the wind changed and by the 90s, Sophisti-pop faded away...


Featuring performances from ABC, Blue Rondo A La Turk, The Style Council, Matt Bianco, Sade, Scritti Politti, Simply Red, Swing Out Sister and Curiosity Killed the Cat.
