Over the last few years we’ve been looking back 30 years at what was going on musically, as we enter 2023 this show travels back 30 years to 1993.
Ignoring the huge success of Meat Loaf, Take That and Mr Blobby the original shoegaze bands were releasing their second albums with mixed results, whilst the music press had turned to Britpop.
The experimentation in music could be found in new electronic acts such as Aphex Twin (also known as Polygon Window) and Underworld.
There was also a new wave of US bands emerging who weren’t influenced by the UK music press such as Mazzy Star and the Brian Jonestown Massacre.
