After the relative success of last year‘s week of oldies, in which we took a week out to re-evaluate oldies from Depeche Mode (here), The Beloved (here), The Human League (here), The Presets (here) and Röyksopp (here), it’s time for its successor, which I’m imaginitively calling Week of oldies II.
I’ve already hinted at a couple of this year’s oldies. On Tuesday we’ll take a trip back to a slice of 1994 pop from the Lightning Seeds, which turns out not to be quite as good as we remembered. On Wednesday, we’ll listen to a defining piece of late 1990s house music as it celebrates its fifteenth anniversary. Thursday’s release is a best of from this week in 1999 for a much older act, and Friday and Saturday will provide even more surprises!
So stay tuned for the Week of oldies II!
