New music scene in the British Isles
THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE INTRODUCTION TO THE RECENT BRITISH MUSIC SCENE AND THE IMPACT OF BREXIT ON POPULAR CULTURE.
The UK is teetering on the brink of collapse. Thatcher’s legacy has translated into a forty-year crackdown not only on the public system, but above all on any show of solidarity and any hint of community. With inequality and poverty at historic levels, Brexit was presented as a way out of this self-destructive spiral, but it was just another trap: the social divide has continued to grow. However, in that fracture a new musical scene has been forged that expresses all the anger and discontent that drowns the majority of society.
Children of Brexit it is a journey through this new scene but also through the social and political context that has made it possible. Bands that recover the best of punk and post-punk, festivals where effigies of Thatcher are hung and concerts with massive pogos where everyday desolation dissolves. The dance floor will always be ours.
