Wait on a sec… How come no one ever realised until after the event that Drum and Bass was rubbish?
Hard to believe it now but there was a period in the 90’s when everyone thought Drum and Bass was the future of music.
Even huge established artists lost their minds for a moment and tried their hand at it. If you don’t believe me, then check out this clip from Bowie.
I can just imagine him in the studio with two nobend DnB producers with them both going, ‘No Dave, DnB tracks don’t have a middle 8’ and him crying into crush velvet alien robes. So far away indeed…
I’m sure at one point I even read an interview with Laurie Anderson and she was saying some nonsense like, ‘Oh yeah Lou’s got really into Drum and Bass now’.
HA! Can you imagine it? I think I’d rather listen to Metal Machine Music.
Luckily it never seemed to surface and eventually DnB ended up nothing more than a jingle on a BnQ advert…
Oh and the soundtrack to my nightmares.
