Library Rock's Backpages

Hall and Oates

Martin Aston, OOR, October 1990

"PEOPLE SAY, 'When will the next big thing come?' It will only come when the last big thing's influence is wholly exhausted... we will suck something dry and then and only then move on to something new. A classic medium moves not linearly but cyclically, around and around, feeding on itself, until that circle is broken,...then a new circle is generated."
