Siamese Dream

Mondays 9pm-11pm

In the 90s, “alternative” became the buzz-word used to sell everything from fashion to fast food, and the word “indie” truly departed from its dictionary definition as music released on an independent label.

During the 90s, indie became a worldwide phenomenon. Siamese Dream traces this history back to its roots, working through indie rock, grunge, lo-fi, Britpop, shoegaze, post-rock, electronica, trip hop and more.

Digging through the rubble to bring you not just the indie crossover hits from the 90s, but also the vanguard tracks of the 80s and in-depth investigation of lesser-known artists and nuggets from the era where flannel and corduroy ruled, Siamese Dream remembers a time before skinny jeans and haircuts took over – when playing it loose, loud and messy was the only way.

1998...a year of an unfortunate re-election for John Howard, back to back flags for Adelaide Crows and a heap of great music. Tonight's Siamese Dream is a look at that music. The death throes of Brit POp, the new wave of Hip Hop, American Indie Bands a plenty and much more.
