Chapter 204: Sleeping Lessons

Twee & indie pop

With the benefit of hindsight, the Village Green Preservation Society was pretty successful in its mission! Donald Duck, Moriarty and Dracula are all going strong in 2020; Fu Manchu is definitely cancelled, though, and I have no clue who Mrs. Mopp and Mother Riley are. The twee, childlike sound that followed in “Village Green”’s wake is inherently nostalgic: the feather-light but slightly downcast melodies of Feist and Belle & Sebastian seem designed to trigger reveries to bygone days. Maybe the VGPS did their job too well - the culture never completely moved on from the 1960s...
