Ancestor of Oughts:
Best (old) Music of the Decade

Ancestor of Oughts

Everybody’s got ‘em, present company obviously included. Lists and lists of the best of this and that to help mark the passing of another 10 crazy years. But the Ought’s ancestors called, and they want their jaggy guitars, compressed drum tracks, cheesy keyboard sounds and whispery vocals back.

So, here’s to those records without whom our latest crop of honorable pirates and thieves would have starved on the streets. And make no mistake, this is no slight. The bad only borrow. Only the good steal.

    thanks daniel, had not seen this documentary, so very much my speed ;-) Sadly, Netflix doesn’t offer it, so I’ll watch it piecemeal. I love that it’s intentions as serious documentary vs. satire are very much unclear. Kinda like SynthPop itself ;-)
