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-discoItalo discoEuro disco and dance-popbecame more popular. Rock music continued to enjoy a wide audience. Soft rockglam metalthrash metalshred guitar characterized by heavy distortion, pinch harmonics and whammy bar abuse became very popular. Adult contemporaryquiet 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 electrotechnohousefreestyle and Eurodance, rising in prominence during the 1990s and beyond. Throughout the decade, R&Bhip 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 12th July 2019

SOUND OF THE MOUNTAINS Tumut radio.

Did you know that Jim the Greek was the first person to invent ‘nasiums’? Because Jim was a very enterprising bloke, today nasiums are known as ‘gymnasiums’ right across the world. And if I’m lifting too much weight up to my mouth I exercise – I do anyway. You see, half a kilo of fat is three and a half thousand calories and to lose half a kilo of fat in a week isn’t easy, but achievable. If you lose an excessive amount of weight obviously you become thin and your pants fall down, as will your metabolism not being able to cope with the sudden change. So be sensible.

Now, did you also know that the Greeks are amongst the world’s best cooks? That’s why they made Greek Gods out of humans. Exercise and good food. But just before we get onto the food, check with your medico before doing anything vigorous, but don’t use that as an excuse to sit around eating things you know you shouldn’t.

Now I know that Taramasalata (Tarama salad) has lots of olive oil but, remember, you don’t eat buckets of it, and remember too you’re exercising. (Also, forget the commercially made stuff and make your own, you’ll be delighted with the taste difference.)

P.S. I serve a dollop of Taramasalata and a spoonful of Chinese Plum Sauce with a prawn which I’ve cooked in a frying pan with a little butter and olive oil.

TARAMASALATA.

125g tarama (salted cod roe, obtainable at continental delicatessens); 1 small onion, finely chopped; 1 1/2 cups good quality Italian olive oil; 4 slices of bread, trimmed of crust; juice of 2 lemons.

Mash the tarama and put it into your blender with the finely chopped onion, the olive oil and the lemon juice. Soak the bread in water, squeeze the water out of it, and crumble that into the blender as well. Pop the lid on and blend it. When the taramasalata is smooth and a pale pink colour, pour it into a dish, pop it onto a biscuit or serve it with warm fresh bread.

Friday 5th July

SOUNDS OF THE MOUNTAINS Tumut radio.

I’ve just finished reading an article in the Tumut and Adelong Times which the Tumut radio station ‘Sounds of the Mountains’ send me each week. The article ‘Youngest players lead the way’ told of the region’s young hockey players.

Now I played hockey all my adult life. And so am besotted with the game. Oh, how I wish Tumut had had a hockey team when I was a whipper-snapper growing up there.

I remember doing an ABC programme where I interviewed the greatest hockey player Australia had produced. Mike Craig was the great guy whom I introduced to my son who was also a hockey player (on his way up), First I asked Mike to explain how one actually hit the ball with a hockey stick.

“Well,” he said, “you only play with the flat side of the stick. You have to be flexible for good close control so you can turn your stick instantly in any direction to play the ball without hitting with the back of the stick. Some blokes just push the ball, they don’t hit it. With practice you can develop a strong push for shooting at goal or a ground pass. Firmly push and flick the stick out after the ball. It’s really a bit like a golf shot or a cricket shot with perhaps a bit more wrist. You’re not allowed to play the ball above your shoulder. The ball must drop to the ground unless it’s out in the clear where you can play it in the air without decapitating six players in one swipe.”

I asked Mike to demonstrate how he got a ball past an opponent. “Start dribbling the ball with the flat of the stick. When you actually tackle, confuse your opponent keeping him or her unsure of which way you’ll turn your stick. And keep your stick in contact with the ball. But remember, don’t give away what you’re going to do. Learn the flick – run along dribbling the ball and then smartly flick it off the end of the stick. The important thing is to trick them – look as if you’re going to pass, and then simply go around the other way.”

I left Mike for the kitchen and made what I called a ‘Hockey Burger’ for the camera. And, as I’ve written about that recipe before, I’ll give a different version of it today. Cooking is like hockey, play the game as people expect but turn the expected into the unexpected, but not outrageously so the umpire gets his whistle working.

ANOTHER TYPE OF HOCKEY BURGER.

1 crispy roll per person; butter, sprinkled lightly with tumeric; small pinch of Sumac*; 1/2 cup diced cooked lamb, either hot or cold; 1 tablespoon plain yoghurt; 1 spring onion, sliced; shredded lettuce; black olive for garnish.

Cut the bread roll in half and pull out the inside of the rounded half. Tumeric and butter the inside of the roll, sprinkle with Sumac and pop in the diced lamb, Spoon on the yoghurt, drop on three or four slices of spring onion then cover with shredded lettuce. Garnish with a pitted black olive.

*Sumac is the dried flesh of a berry grown in the Middle East. Try it!
