I’m in Cold Shock

Okay. This is depressing. Buzzing around the iTunes Music Store, I read the bio for band Coldplay. Argh. Two of these guys were born the year I graduated high school and the other two the year after.

I’m talking 1977-78, and those were good years for music. Signs disco’s reign would finally collapse gave way to some buzzworthy bands: Elvis Costello, Sex Pistols, and Talking Heads, among others. Strange that early 2000-century rock is so reminiscent of 1970’s punk and New Wave.

I’ve always favored music with edge, but, hey, I’ve got eclectic tastes. I pound for Coldplay.
