Re: Laetitia reminisces

I suspect that she would see it as an unconscious reaction to the Culture created by Thatcher i.e. high unemployment for laborers, destruction of community bonds, closing industries, lack of hope in already hopeless northern towns. I suspect she would see that all that negativity led people to withdraw, take drugs, give up on change, give up on communication. I don't know that she would say that shoegazers were consciously apathetic or united in meaninglessness, rather that those bands simply emerged thanks to - at least in part - Thatcherite policies.
