You Tube Mining - Early 1990's gems.

Don't ask me why, but I'm currently searching You Tube for videos of bands that occupy a sort of "vacuum" in my musical interests as I came down from heavy metal and punk but before the whole "grunge" (I hate that word, by the way) really started to dominate.

Frankly, I don't know what you'd call this stuff. Other than, of course, "MTV's 120 Minutes" music. God, I loved that show. Anyway, looking back at how I now remember the early 1990's, this kind of music just seems so out of place. But at the time, I don't think it struck me as odd at all. Not the bright colors; not the baggy-but-not-rapper-baggy clothes; not the stilted soul elements; none of it really. Hmm...

Anyway, enjoy and Happy New Year!
