Rock-n-Roll Exhibition: DAVID BURDEN

Edition: December 14, 2011Rock-n-Roll Exhibition: DAVID BURDENBest British Songs of the Nineties, Noughties and Beyond:: Playlist, intro, song descriptions, and photos, handpicked and written by David himself ::As you may have guessed by the title of this list, I’m English. I like tea. I don’t take myself very seriously. I lived in a place called Aberystwyth at university. I used to be an English teacher. I’m terrible at learning other languages. I like bodyboarding. I always wanted to be an angry young man but I’m too happy-go-lucky. I take photographs for a living. I spend too long thinking about things. Tragically, I have at least five different ways of getting on the Internet at my house. I’m a morning person. I like dark comedy. I think music has more power than most people realize. I hate it when auto correct changes realise to realize. If you think this playlist may seem just a teeny weeny bit nationalistic, you’re probably right (I do love music from all over the world though, honest. I was just struggling to find a theme here). What I think this playlist demonstrates best is that once all the hype has died down and people are off chasing the next big thing, songs can actually be properly appreciated. I think the problem with most music that gets released is an overkill of hype – especially in the UK. Now more than ever the next cool band replaces the last too fast thanks to today’s throwaway culture. A few years down the line and it has become a lot clearer (to me anyway) exactly which ones were five minute fads and which ones I’ll take along with me for the rest of my life. I thought about putting them into some kind of chronological sequence but that was far too fiddly, so in no particular order, I hope you enjoy my standout tracks from the good old UK from the last 20 years. Let’s hope the next 20 years are equally as fertile. RULE BRITANNIA! Big shout out to Mr. Dethu and the TBD crew. Cheers! ♬ Radio streaming live: ♫
