End Of The Century presents:
LJ hosts End of the Century! He has now reached to 𝟭𝟵𝟵𝟳 in his sloth-with-low-blood-sugar paced survey of the years covered by this show.
What was going on in ’97?
In mainstream pop, it looks like Backstreet Boys and The Spice Girls were ruling the roost.
Elton John performed “Candle in the Wind” at Princess Di’s funeral.
But this show will focus on albums, GOOD albums:
• Daft Punk caused a seismic shift in music with their debut album, “Homework.”
• Radiohead released “OK Computer.”
• We reached the apex of Aphex Twin’s reign of terror with both the Richard D. James Album and the Come To Daddy E.P.
• David Byrne released his best solo album, “Feelings.”
• Arto Lindsay contains multitudes, and “Noon Chill” makes sure that you know this.
• Erykah Badu. Erykah Badu. Erykah Badu. Baduizm.
• Smog just wanted to “Be Of Use” (though this song is important to me, I’m pretty sure I can’t play it… or can I??)
And really so so so much more!
