Its as if the Soul and Blues explosion of the sixties never happened. This cold wind of emotionally bankrupt post-punk is totally devoid of any discernable 'Black' influence whatsoever.
This music is so White, it could be a washing powder that promises sheets with the blue whiteness,whiter than white.
The only emotions expressed are bitter hopelessness(if that counts as an emotion?), and the only tears shed are born from miserable self-pity.
In an age where the average male is encouraged to mimick the female emotional spectrum or be labelled a brutal potential rapist whose only emotion is anger, and should never be left alone with children! Where the 'strong silent type' is now thought of as in desperate need of counseling, or even sentenced to decades of psycho-therapy, only to find out he's actually a normal male of the human animal species following a hard wired male behavoural pattern!? No the male is not a malfunctioning woman, he/it's just 'Different' to most ladies.
I notice that all this miserable Cold Wave stuff is made almost exclusively by these same white malfunctioning female males...albeit Malfunctioning Belgian Female males.'Non-Females',the future word for 'Men', will no doubt be the Collins dictionary 'word of the Year' 2019........excuse me a moment while I have a little cry in the corner, and apologize for my ancestors starting all those wars.
