Loads of angry kids are looking for music with attitude as expression of their mood.
Modern punk styles are emerging in London telling raw stories from the street and what it is like being poor and white. With band names like The Meat and Onions Gang, Balkan Chavs, Skets and Run Shebeen delivering music that reflects the frustrations of the times.
For more mainstream music, the genre of music produced by pretty teenagers singing about their love life is giving way as negative social mood intensifies and the minor keys are emphasised with more arty, downbeat music. Lyrics that reflect anxiety and socially conscious themes will emerge with the times.
