Title: Spot the intergenerational differences....!
Post by: 73October on September 07, 2019, 12:42:26 PM
What a difference a generation of musicians makes.....looking at these two interviews, it shows the different approach and understanding in the (local) music industry now compared to a generation ago (in the same city)

positivity and collaboration to some extent amongst bands on the circuit, a sense of being at ease - life seems better for this generation of young bands

rather than a positivity borne out of despair (although that positivity is still there today) and a sense of desperation back in the day

Some things are still pretty much the same (ha ha) though.  The looks, the voice and delivery. 

The first interview very much reminded me of the second.....
I wish the first band all the very best for a long future ahead (will be seeing them live again soon) and the second all the very best for determination to keep going (hope to see them live again at some point in the future).

This is a great idea to juxtapose these interviews. Yes, Inhaler seems much more carefree than young U2. Nice to hear that guitar music might be making a comeback.

I guess it is not surprising that Inhaler is more carefree.  They come from a very different more privileged and experienced position.  U2 came from an era in Ireland of real turmoil and it took real determination and strength of character to make it from absolutely nothing but their own resolve, mind you that also drove the passion that made them an unforgettable band.  Gosh Bono and his son are like peas in a pod.
