    Joan Baez recorded this "talking disco blues" criticism of Time magazine back in 1977.

    Live on Johnny Carson.

    i remember an interview with bambaataa where he talked about how the punk rockers from downtown would come up to his parties in the bx & harlem and be loving it.

    Anthrax. Started a whole genre. Unfortunately caused Limp Bizkit so that a minus. But the Judgement Night soundtrack is a big plus.

    are some of the 80's releases suggested actually attempts to get down or were they just a function of producers exploring new technology (ie drum machines and samplers etc) though?

    It's a great point. Plenty of musicians had the "rap is crap" attitude, but still wanted a banging drum beat. Seeing how Bam credits Kraftwerk the technology is separate from what influences you, why you do it, if your just riding a trend etc. Only an interview with the artist stating his feelings will let us know.
