  2. 2. DISCO IS… (or disco was?) • Most popular in the 1970s • Initial audience: club-goers from African American, gay, Latino, Italian American, and psychedelic communities in New York and Philadelphia during late 1960s and early 1970s. • Considered a reaction against domination of rock and dance music • Well known disco performers: ABBA, Bee Gees, The Village People etc. • Musical influences: funk, Latin and soul • Disco is sometimes considered a sub-genre of electronic
  3. 3.

  5. 5. HOW WIDE/SMALL IS THE AUDIENCE? • Audience very limited • Disco era faded – new music eras arrived (80s, 90s) • Some modern artists tried to make aspects of disco return (e.g. Madonna – image on right) • Overall, not a wide variety of disco music around, however songs from the era still get played, e.g. ‘stayin alive’ and ‘YMCA’.
  6. 6. Indie Folk • Arose in the 1990’s • From singer/songwriters in the indie rock community. • Influenced by the folk music scenes (of the 1950s, 1960s and early 1970s), country music and indie rock. • Commonly related to freak folk, psych folk, baroque pop, etc. • early artists included Lou Barlow and Jeff Buckley. • Significant growth since early 2000s • Beginning with acts, e.g. Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes, and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.
  7. 7. Alternative Rock • Subgenre of rock music. • Emerged from the independent music underground of the 80s. • Became widely popular in the 90s. • ‘Alternative’ refers to distinction from the mainstream rock music. • Most alt bands’ commercial success – limited compared to other genres of rock/pop at the time (80s) – so stayed signed to independent labels & received little attention from the media. • With breakthrough of Nirvana & the popularity of grunge and Britpop movements in 90s – alt. rock entered musical mainstream & many alt. bands became commercially successful.
