Yacht Fascism, 1980-86 (a playlist by Oliver Craner)

Did we ever get round to asking what the modern Yacht Fascist soundtrack is?
Well the quintessential modern yacht (or super-yacht, rather) is owned by a Russian oligarch or an oil sheikh from the Gulf. So that should give a starting point.


bandz ahoy
Bourdieu's theory of cultural capital suggests that if you're rich as Midas you probably don't need to flex about your musical taste anymore and you can safely enjoy the music of Coldplay.

Whereas I'm relatively skint and I am compelled to listen to hideously atonal Miles Davis albums to raise myself out of the morass.

Some fucking Russian eurodance maybe

With a guy rapping in russian but with the voice of Pitbull?
That's starting to sound like hardbass, but that's going into squatting-Slavs-in-tracksuits territory, which only really works in a grimy, grey housing project in a decaying Russian city. An aesthetic that could hardly be further removed from "yacht".
