“How could an entire generation…groups of generations! be sooo lost?”, I thought. Do America’s youth have no awareness or respect for Madchester? The Second Summer of Love? Acid House? The birth of rave culture and the gloriously unique brand of psychedelic Brit-pop that accompanied it? The answer apparently, repeatedly seems to be no. I am heartbroken because in the historical timeline of psychedelia and party music, The Stones Roses loom large.
