Talking music: old-skool

pokey

How old is old-skool music?

Perhaps it depends on who you’re asking?

At the moment, we keep seeing adverts on television for those terrible ‘dancefloor bangers’ compilations of the ’90s and ’00s. For those of us who are a little older, we might think about ’80s rap acts like Run DMC and early Beastie Boys. But, what if we go older-skool than that?

The After Noon team has been checking out some cracking old-style acts recently. (It just so happens that a lot of them have toured around the same time.)

Here are some of our favourites:

Pokey LaFarge, who’s pictured above (website)

So, what does old-skool mean to you? Let us know in the comments below.
