Music (153)

Like many parents from all generations since the Second World War - I worry about the music and cultures that my children are drawn to.

Marc Bolan (1947 - 1977) (T.Rex)

Written by
Mark Feld was born in 1947 in East London. As he grew up he listened to early rock and roll artists and got his first guitar, aged nine.

2018 has been a great year for music. I’d argue it’s been the best year for new music of the 21st century so far, in fact. Which is why I’ve felt compelled to make another playlist, following on from my January to March one a few months earlier. This list covers the April to June period, compiling my favourite Albums and Eps of these three months, after which I hope to make one more covering July to December which will hopefully land in the new year. Here’s hoping 2019 will be even better!

There is one thing that shines through when you meet Stone Foundation’s lead singer and that is his undying love for the music that this band from the Midlands are producing at this point in their career.
