The 1970s created a perfect musical bridge from the rebelliousness of the 1960s and the happy songs that are characteristic of the 1980s. Following the counterculture of the 60s, the and the 70s created a trend of relaxing music as well as dance music. People may have grown tired of the fighting that happened the previous decade and many of them sought a refuge in dance clubs and other places to enjoy a good time. Out of this idea emerged the Disco movement. Of course, there were still the bands and artists that continued to speak of the ills of society, typically characterized by the punk music in the latter part of the decade. Although the rebellious idea had died down shortly following Woodstock in 1969, there were still many people that disagreed with the establishment and the way the country was being run. Most people, though, were just looking for another way to vent their frustrations, which helped to give rise to the fun that disco music provided. The 1970’s was not a unique decade in terms of creating innovations in musical styles and genres, but it was unique in that it was a musical bridge connecting the hippie lifestyle of the 1960s with the characteristic yuppie lifestyle that was about to occur in the 1980s.
The 1980s saw the emergence of dance music and new wave. As disco fell out of fashion in the decade’s early years, genres such as post-disco, Italo disco, Euro disco and dance-popbecame more popular. Rock music continued to enjoy a wide audience. Soft rock, glam metal, thrash metal, shred guitar characterized by heavy distortion, pinch harmonics and whammy bar abuse became very popular. Adult contemporary, quiet storm, and smooth jazz gained popularity. In the late 1980s, glam metal became the largest, most commercially successful brand of music in the United States and worldwide.[
The 1980s are commonly remembered for an increase in the use of digital recording, associated with the usage of synthesizers, with synth-pop music and other electronic genres featuring non-traditional instruments increasing in popularity. Also during this decade, several major electronic genres were developed, including electro, techno, house, freestyle and Eurodance, rising in prominence during the 1990s and beyond. Throughout the decade, R&B, hip hop and urban genres were becoming commonplace, particularly in the inner-city areas of large, metropolitan cities; rap was especially successful in the latter part of the decade,[ with the advent of the golden age of hip hop. These urban genres—particularly rap and hip hop—would continue their rise in popularity through the 1990s and 2000s.

PETER RUSSELL-CLARKE – Friday recipes
Friday 29th March 2019
FIGS. Figs have fed the masses for before history. Figs probably came from somewhere in Asia. Nevertheless, the Ancient Egyptians gloried in their flavour, so too the Romans, the Arabs and just about anyone else you can think of. They are a fair source of potassium, calcium and vitamin C, niacin and riboflavin. They have MILD laxative properties, but don’t expect to get your exercise by trotting to the toilet.
Personally I simply cut them up and drop them into soup – either hot or cold – or serve them with cheese or beside a cooked filet of fish. But if you feel cheated if I don’t give you a recipe, here’s a simple, quite easy one.
Cut the figs in half lengthways and put them, cut side up onto a heatproof plate or a piece of foil. On top of each put a teaspoon of butter and a teaspoon of sherry. Sprinkle with a little coriander, or if you prefer, cinnamon. Pop them under the griller for about 5 minutes then serve hot.
Use them as a dessert or serve them as an accompaniment to fish or meat.
