Brierly Hill 90210 presents... 1990 *UPDATED*

July 4, 2020

For those that missed the beginning, this series started in 1977 and the last episode saw the end of a decade with 1989. In 13 years, music went from The Ramones and The Sex Pistols to James and The Happy Mondays, from Kraftwerk to 808 State. Bands have come and gone; The Clash, The Farmers Boys, The Smiths. While others remain; Cabaret Voltaire, The Cure, New Order. And so into the 90s. I'm still living in Cheltenham (in the Hatherly area), still at the same job I had upon leaving school 7 years earlier. I'm probably partying too hard, but was in my early 20s so it would have been rude not to. The Iron Curtain is, if not completely dragged wide open, certainly open half-way with disobedient children unashamedly peaking through. At home, like the Iron Curtain, the Iron Lady sees challenges that appear to signal the beginning of the end. A build-up of violence at football matches saw an increased caging-in of fans which results in the tragedy at Hillsborough. Apartheid remains but, in South Africa, just as elsewhere in the world, you can feel change coming... neither hosts nor alters podcast files. All content © its respective owners.
