LAB Mixtapes: Episode 7

The 80's weren't so bad and here's the proof. Bands like Interpol, Bloc Party and Kasabian seem to channel an 80's indie sound - in a good way. Their influences appear to be Joy Division, The Smiths, and The Cure and prove that despite the dreck of mainstream radio (which happens in every era) there was, in fact, a lot of fine music in the Decade of Me. Please enjoy and feel free to don mascara and your Chuck Taylor high-tops.

Episode 7.
Runs 12:06 mins

Links below will launch the iTunes Music Store.
1. Obstacle 1 - Interpol
2. The Reason is Treason - Kasabian
3. Banquet - Bloc Party

For no particular reason, some other bands that appeared on my Radar at the same time as these would The Artic Monkeys, Snow Patrol (snow theme here?), British Sea Power and maybe Franz Ferdinand. Which reminds me that a Manchester Mix with the likes of Stone Roses, Happy Mondays and The Buzzcocks might also be on deck.
