[Video] Goin’ Old School: Fad Gadget & The Rock Steady Crew

 

Goin’ Old School isn’t a trip down music memory lane, it’s a mugging in the dark alleyway of nostalgia:

SynthPop pioneer and all-round electronic experimentalist, the late Fad Gadget’s 1980 single Ricky’s Hand.

And The Rock Steady Crew with their 1984 follow up to (Hey You) The Rock Steady Crew (a track with one of the greatest synth riffs ever), Uprock.

Goin’ Old School: Camouflage, The Rock Steady Crew & Tracy Spencer

Goin’ Old School isn’t a trip down music memory lane, it’s a mugging in the dark alleyway of nostalgia:

Camouflage’s dark Pop classic from 1987, ‘The Great Commandment’.

‘Uprock’ was The Rock Steady Crew’s 1984 follow up to the amazing ‘(Hey You) The Rock Steady Crew’

From 1985 here’s some big Italo-Pop from Tracy Spencer’s ‘Run To Me’.

Goin’ Old School: The Rock Steady Crew – Hey You (The Rock Steady Crew)

I love this song so much words cannot express, the synth riff in it is just so catchy it’s not even funny. The Rock Steady Crew’s 1983 hit ‘Hey You (The Rock Steady Crew)’ followed Malcom McLaren’s ‘Buffalo girls’ in being one of the first tracks that introduced Hip Hop to the UK.
