Rock Generation
One can read that rock music is dying out...a
Editorial By Andrija Curkovic


HiFi Media Issue 110 January / February / March 2020


  Peter Fonda, a representative of a rebellious generation from the late 1960s, a hippie movement and rock and roll, has recently passed away; an actor, screenwriter and producer of the cult film "Easy Rider", identified by many contemporaries of the period. Seeking more freedom in the form of protests against political elites of the time, accompanied by rock concerts, has also spawned a group of musicians who are still considered the pinnacle of rock music. Many later became role models for others to establish their own bands and launch new musical directions - prog and glam rock, hard and heavy metal, punk, grunge...

Such charge and energy with a high social note and an expression of one's own attitude appears later in the punk movement, so here we recall the group The Clash and one of the best albums in rock history London Calling, the American punk rock scene as well as the leader of the "riot grrrl" movement of the group Sleater-Kinney and, in the end, of the unique, legendary, often called "father" of the punk scene, Iggy Pop.

Increasingly, one can read that rock music is dying out, that there is no longer that rebellion in the songs, and that there are only a few exceptions that make little of that claim. Maybe they're partly right, maybe it's easier to let go of decadence nowadays and harder to be on the barriers defending the oppressed, even though it was only through songs. The biological cycle has inevitably taken a toll on the golden rock generation, but their legacy does not die. I believe..., I want to believe that new kids are coming to ride a new wave of music based on rock roots. No need to be the same, but let it be from the heart.


HiFi Media Issue 110 January / February / March 2020


You can read an interesting topic in the film section of the magazine where our new and young associate Dunja Ivezic writes with such inspiration about the neo-western, today's western, a popular movie genre that many would think belongs to a distant film history.

However, whether you are listening to music or watching a movie through the prism of the past or if you are always catching up only with a new wave, there will always be a need for devices that will allow you to consume it. In this issue of the magazine you can find several such products that will surprise you with its quality.

As the end of the current year is nearing, I would like to wish you, on behalf of the entire editorial board, a Merry Christmas and a prosperous new year 2020.


Have a pleasant read,


-- Andrija Curkovic
