Teach me about....


Beast of Burden
A couple of years ago I was working with a childhood friend in a job that involved driving the length and breadth of the country Monday to Friday, which meant we had a lot of time to kill on the road. After enduring months of his Spotify playlist of 2010 era Youngsta dubstep, I attempted to play him a playlist of Italo-Disco. After three songs he said it was shit and turned it off. I asked him what was wrong with it and he said that, to him, it sounded like a karoke night for 50-somethings in a pub in Swansea. I told him to try and imagine being on holiday in the south of Spain during the 1980s and dancing late at night with the girl of his dreams at a beachside disco but he wasn't having it. So we reverted to listening to his drudgy dubstep and being reminded of Bristol as an aesthetic manfestation till I left the company a few months later.

All other points aside, why Swansea?
