"Daddy, what was seventies music like before punk?"
Well son, some was really good, some was really bad and some was Genesis and ELP!
Today's NoMen radio show focuses on cheesy pop, hard rock and classy glam!
Would you believe that The Osmonds would be singing over Led Zep's Immigrant Song riff? It's like a mash up 30years before they were invented.
At the other end of the spectrum we have Kevin Coyne baring his soul and Leonard Cohen going OTT with Phil Spector. If you want straight ahead rock we have Mott the Hoople, Alice Cooper, Humble Pie and albino blues man Johnny Winter!
Glam rock is covered by a couple of classics from David Essex and a couple from T Rex not to mention electro pop from Giorgio Moroder's Chicory Tip.
Jamaica's dub guru Lee Perry made his best records in the 70s, but what the hell was he doing making trippy folk -prog with John Martyn? Tune in to find out!!!
