Post Crunch

It could be that mind is not up to speed this a.m., but I'm starting to lose track of all the genre/sub-genre/subversive-genres of music these days. It seems that most of these are springing out of what used to be called techno (which I think is no longer used) and hip hop, but they are prevelant everywhere (slow-core, emo core, shoegaze, post-rock (a true misnomer), glitch, twee pop, etc., etc,...).

So I am going to save many writers some trouble and forecast some genres for the next year:

Post Crunch
Blerb
Pasty Town
Rip Rip
Scrounge
Cloud Hop
Frizz Core
Peter Pop
Liplick
Antique Beat
Salad Core
Post Ear

So many it makes my head hurt. How come as each new genre comes out the names sound more and more like the fall line up at Willy Wonka's. I am not to worried though, soon Wyld Stalyns music will bring peace and their will be only one! Rock on Bill and Ted.

They say Nirvana was the creator
of grunge. One day You will go
down in history as the Godfather
of liplick. But what will the
fashion statement be?

Liplick- a sub-sub-genre of Post-Sweaty Trance which articulates the schwetty balls inherent in such beats.

Those kids and their schwetty balls. Parents are not going to
like that one bit. Where is that
sub-sub genre going to hit first?
I don't want to be late on that
train.
