South Club Tries to Channel the Past on 90

You cannot claim to be a 90s kid without acknowledging the sheer scale of rock superstars Nirvana. While musically they were nothing to be scoffed at, their success and huge impact arguably came more from how different they were from literally everything else. Music in the 80s was all about the flash and the aesthetics, and the music itself was thanks to the influences of the New Wave and the second British Invasion synth-driven and catchy. Progressive rock and hard rock had started to fade out of the mainstream, and the only metal that survived was hair metal – big, bombastic, over the top, and just as focused on appealing to a mainstream audience rather than expanding the genre. As the 80s faded, many saw the music scene as a conglomeration of drugs and money; everything designed to please the lowest common denominator with shallow, empty music.
