100 years of leaving earth

Playing tracks by

Prologue 1914.

Chart positions

This upload was 50th in the #blues chart.

from the music halls to free parties, from syncopated rhythms to techno beats, from dreaming of space to traversing the solar system, from trench warfare to the atom bomb and the endless war on terra, from suffragettes to anti-fracking... the advent of portable gramophones, radio, sound movies, television, internet and (yet to come) time travel... a lot happened between 1917 to 2017 on Ynys Prydein (or the island of Britain as it was renamed 2000 years ago) and elsewhere... West Africa-derived rhythms and polyphony fused with European melodies and instrumentation, incubated mainly in the Deep South of the US of A, as well as originating sounds from the islands of Cuba, Jamaica, Trinidad and Hawaii, all mashed up with existing "British" cultures to create rock music in 1964, and then soar into the stratosphere with psychedelia and on to punk, techno, grime and dubstep...
