Sample text

It was something fast, unstable and unstoppable. It was speed metal, metal and speed. ” — but you didn’t want it to slow down. There was a thrill in hanging on for the ride, when so much of my teenage years had been spent chafing at the bit, awaiting the point at which I could pull away and see how fast this thing could go. I may have been moving only inside my head, clinging onto the music, but I was moving at a dazzling, desperate speed. ” Definitely Maybe, also released in 1994, has come to instantly define the decade, but its escapist trajectory was an optimistic and naïvely uplifting one.

The Holy Bible is a pitiless record: in an era when it seemed grief had to be performative to be believed, The Holy Bible refuses to accept the performance of grief as sincere. Every tear is false. The album is heavy with unhappiness over the wrongs of human history, it repents and is sorry, but grief is not a get-out clause, and neither is repentance. Everyone is guilty. The entire fifty-six minutes can feel like a disapproving judgement on the listener. The Holy Bible is an overcast and stifling record, with even its gentlest moment, “This is Yesterday,” no more than a fleeting slant of sunlight through dark clouds.

Initially a Conservative project, the Dome was meant to cater to a perceived popular need for “the sense of congregation, of coming together” (Weight 692). The fact that such a collectivist need could be identified by a Conservative Home Secretary demonstrated how glaringly apparent the damage done by 80s individualism was by the end of the 90s. That longing for congregation and coming together had in fact been manifested throughout the decade in the struggles to maintain the free party scene, the rave and techno gatherings in contravention of the Criminal Justice Bill, the crowds at Oasis’ mass gig at Knebworth, and the public hysteria over the death of the Princess of Wales.
