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 13th December 2019:
SEARED TUNA IN WASABI TEA.
The rule for this recipe is not to overcook the tuna. (If you don’t have tuna one can use another fish, though I personally prefer the tuna .)
Also, use GREEN tea NOT black tea. The rest is straight forward I think.
240g sashimi-grade bluefin or yellowfin tuna, well trimmed; 1 tablespoon olive oil; 2 teaspoons finely minced fresh ginger; 1 teaspoon lime or lemon juice; 1 teaspoon sesame oil.
WASABI TEA – 1 teaspoon soy sauce; 2 teaspoons rice wine vinegar; 1 teaspoon sesame oil; 1 teaspoon wasabi paste; 2 teaspoons loose green tea leaves.
Cut tuna into slices about 5 mm thick. Mix the minced ginger, sesame oil and lime if you have it, or use lemon juice, into a thin paste. Roll the tuna in the paste and season with a little salt.
Put a pan over a high heat, add olive oil and sear the tuna evenly on both sides – just till the outside colours. Take the tuna from the pan and set it aside to cool.
Make the wasabi tea by pouring 60 ml of boiling water onto green tea leaves, let it brew for 5 minutes then strain. Add the wasabi paste, sesame oil, rice wine vinegar and soy sauce to the strained tea and mix extremely well.
To serve, pour wasabi tea into bowls then add two slices of tuna.
Friday 6th December 2019:
Christmas is pulled towards us as Rudolph and his mates negotiate the rooftops and my son Peter III, his wife Jan II and their two children Sierra and Laya follow and no doubt pass them as the family are to spend Christmas with me and Jan I.
Therefore, folks, I need to unwrap my thoughts about what little girls eat – or like to eat and still get their fill of nutritious and essential goodies to assist them to outdo their heroine Dolly Parton (or mine, Sophia Loren.). Sophia famously said “All you see is due to spaghetti” – (more on spaghetti later.)
So, dear follower of all things healthy, I share with you this childishly simple ‘Sierra and Laya Christmas Special’. (It’s an adaption of French Toast.)
* The bread’s made from wheat and seeds etc.
* The eggs are a packaged vitamin pill.
* The cheese and milk are calcium.
* Butter is better (in moderation).
* All the above combined taste terrific.
PS. Mind you they’ll get their Broccoli and Brussels Sprouts hit too.
HONEYED FRENCH TIOAST. 8 eggs; 50 ml milk; pinch of salt; 4 large doorstep slices of wholemeal seed bread; 1 tablespoon of butter; honey to serve; cinnamon to sprinkle; enough slices of tasty Cheddar cheese to lightly cover the bread.
Beat the eggs and milk together with a pinch of salt and pour into a wide, shallow dish.
Soak the bread slices in the egg mixture for at least 5 minutes making sure all the egg mixture is soaked up.
Melt the butter in a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Lay as many of the soaked bread slices in one layer in the pan as you can. You may have to cook them in batches.
Fry the bread for two or three minutes each side then lift them out of the pan and put them on a plate, drizzle them with honey and sprinkle with cinnamon.
Lay slices of tasty cheese over the lot and serve.
(Don’t grill the cheese.)
PS. I know the girls like blueberries and the adults tomatoes or maybe caperberries, so they could top the cheese!
