SF Sorrow in an EV bar. Unexpected.

That's getting past "pop music stopping", though.  I don't think anyone is playing or listening to that as if it's contemporary music.  It's more a case of connoisseurship -- more like a certain kind of bar or restaurant playing rare jump blues tracks in the '80s.

If it was.

But this wasn’t knowing curation, just something on a playlist which sounded like other stuff on the playlist.

It took me a while to notice what it was, because it was part of a homogenize rockish background drone.

Gang of Four in new and grown-up cocktail bar. It certainly doesn’t sound 40 years old (partly because of immense lasting influence on later indie bands).

Good listening on this topic, for those that can stomach it from Jon Caramanica :

It is weird to think of 1960s rock, or mid-2000s indie, as much more than dad rock now. 


I think you need to interpret what I'm saying in a reasonable way.

Gang of Four from 41 years ago in a rather staid midtown cocktail bar. 1970s Trostky rock had no idea of its future.

I enjoyed them, and was fortunate enough to see them once in a small San Jose club, probably early to mid-80s?
