Growing up it was dad listening to Terry Wogan and Jimmy Young on Radio 2. And on the Sunday, The Adams singer's doing Shoe Tunes on sing something simple on our Sunday drives. Add a large dollop of diddly Dee music and lots of Jazz.

At primary school it was glam rock, but T.Rex, Sweet & Slade an, er, Gary Glitter were the mainstays, though Bowie crept in

Then I went to secondary school and all the long haired 6th formers told us the charts were crap and it should be Greenslade/ELP/Genesis/Jethro Tull and Floyd

Then, thank fully punk happened and we told the 6th formers to fuck OFF - and it was Pistols, Clash, Damned, Jam


I could not have put it better myself, identical experience, spooky.

But by late 70s post-punk I embraced funk & soul & reggae

Not so tribal nowadys so can listen to a bit of Progressive stuff again and also like people like Neil Young who we dismissed as a 'crap hippy' back in the 70s

Re: 1970s music you grew up with
In the 1970s the ones I liked were (besides Play School "Bang On a Drum" when I was a toddler of course):
Anything by Ian Dury - helped that my old man liked him too (meant he'd pay for the records & cassettes)
Tom Robinson Band 2-4-6-8-Motorway
Tubeway Army - Are Friends Electric
and to the chagrin of my Mum, I also remember being enthralled by Siouxsie & the Banshees and the Sex Pistols!

Got into a lot more 70's stuff during my teen years, but that was in the 80s...

Re: 1970s music you grew up with
Don't even know a couple of Coffee's 5 reference pieces.

But I do remember exactly where I was (a Kennedy moment) when I first heard Sultans of Swing. Which, unlike yours truly, has aged rather well.

Re: 1970s music you grew up with
Funnily enough, a song I loved as a kid popped up on the pub jukebox. Seasons in the Sun by Terry Jacks. It depresses the fuck out of me now.

I also loved 'It's Just another Day' by PM and Wings.

Then I left home and moved in with a bloke called Ten Pole Tudor, and he helped to widen my musical tastes.
