Chillwave Origins Pt. 2


The year is 1980. Spain’s embassy in Guatamala is attacked and set on fire. Bon Scott drinks himself to death. Mount Saint Helens ‘slodes. And Washed Out mastermind Ernest Greene is divided. At the same time somewhere in France, proto-Power Rangers “Space” are going platinum(many times over) with a perfect storm of bad dancing, spacesuits, greenscreen videos, and driving, ethereal space disco. Space evoke visions of El Dorado, a gleaming memory, much richer than its contemporary counterparts could ever dream of. Plus, just think of how much those keyboards cost in 1980!
