Repercussions #21 “Rewind: 1989”

Repercussions is my weekly radio show and podcast broadcasting on FBi Click. Here’s the details of the latest episode:

In this episode of Repercussions, we rewind back a quarter of a century to 1989, to a time that is known as ‘the second summer of love’.  The first summer of love was back in 1967, when thousands of people migrated to San Francisco for a wild psychedelic ride fuelled by sex, drugs, politics and rock and roll.  The second summer swapped the rock and roll for rave; and the rise of house and techno reached a tipping point, summoning hedonistic love and public condemnation in equal measures.  Acid House was a key part of the soundtrack, and we kick off with a couple of key acid tracks from Farley Jackmaster Funk and Virgo Four, before moving through the birth of Warp Records with Forgemasters and Nightmares On Wax, picking up artists such as 808 State, The Beloved, New Order, Renegade Soundwave and The KLF, and rounding off with some free-love inspired hip hop from De La Soul and Neneh Cherry.
