If you like your guitars fuzzy, buzzy, loud and scuzzy, you’re probably already into the world of shoegaze. Although its moment in the sun was short-lived (c.1989-1992), it’s never really gone away and seems to always be threatening some kind of comeback.
This week’s show looks at the history of this scene and sound from the early 80s right up until today. If you want to get started now, have a listen to this playlist.
The Ongoing History of New Music can be heard on the following stations:
- 102.1 The Edge/Toronto – Sunday night at 7, Monday night at 11
