This is the music that was alternative before they called it "alternative" – punk, new wave, postpunk, goth, industrial,
two-tone ska, classic 70’s reggae, etc, etc, etc.t’s the music that made you trade in your bellbottoms,
long hair and Led Zep t-shirts for spiked hair, skinny ties,
dreadlocks or dayglow.
If you think the years 1975 through 1989 were the greatest period
of time in the history of rock n’ roll then “Retrograde”
is how you should start your weekend.
