The 70's Trip
The 70's... it was a time for big. Big hair, big ties, big cars. Bigger, brighter, faster, louder. Especially music. Big fuck-off slabs of riffage; distorted analog organ & synths; pounding bass/drum rhythms. Simple, monolithic, metallic.
And looking back, it was funny. Damn funny.
This compilation gives a nod to the serious and over serious, the lesser so and those they inspired in later decades.
If you break a grin while listening to this I've succeeded; if you turn it up loud and piss off the neighbours as well then you're back there with me. Enjoy the trip.
