Hey, put those rocks down!
The man's entitled to his opinion.
As a long-time fan of electronic music -- and I'm talking the full gamut here -- I tend to bristle when I see one of my favorite decades (artistically speaking) being dismissed off-hand. This "one hit wonder" thing is a popular music-related meme, but in most cases it just does not hold water. While it's true that many artists only spilled over into mainstream radio once or twice, a lot of them had some solid careers. A perfect example: Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark. They leaked over into pop with their track "If You Leave" which appeared on the soundtrack to John Hughes' Pretty in Pink (1986):
If you weren't in the know, you probably missed out on Dazzle Ships (1982) -- a weird foray into post-Industrial sound collages that has more in common with the studio noodlings of late-Beatles and Pink Floyd than you might imagine. In total the band has produced eleven albums -- the most recent of which was released in 2010! Here's "Electricity" which appeared on their s/t debut in 1979:
In fact, a lot of artists who hit their stride in the 80s are still quite prolific. Here's Robert Smith of The Cure providing vocals for a recent Crystal Castles track called "Not in Love":
I could go on forever, but I need to go rock out with my crypt cock out.
