When I was but a young child I used to sit in the front of our family store each evening totally engrossed by the ‘top 7 at 7’ on our local radio station. On reflection, I am pretty sure it was basically the same 7 songs on a nightly basis but thrilling to me as an 8 year old nonetheless.
In my teen years I entered a new phase of loving ‘independent’ music – went to my first concert (Garbage, who were anything but) and embraced the sort of commercial pseudo-bohemian lifestyle that only a 15 year old boy in small town Australia could even attempt.
As I gradually graduated to adulthood the cornerstone of my music tastehood – RnB and associates – firmly established itself as my ever faithful go-to jams.
Now, I see all these phases and crazes have all shaped my music taste into the eclectic thang it is today, which I call a delicious mongrel casserole.
So, here I am to write about all of them – one(ish) track, album, artist at at time across multiple life ‘events’.
Thanks for humouring my indulgence.
