Weekend musical interlude.
Punk Rock, Ska and Reggae. The days of death to Disco, I grew up with the Bee Gees and all the disco greats engrained in my brain from all the afternoons sitting at Feathers, were my mom worked, the fashion store par excellence in Durban at the time, where disco music ruled.
We hated it and went in the other direction, angry music, rebel music, music for change.
The Dead Kennedys being by far the favourite punk band.
Then came Ska.
The Specials ruled.
and of course the Clash. The only band that Matters.
