n. Music performed by aging rock stars; music that is strongly influenced by groups from the 60's and 70's.
Paul 'Don't call it Dadrock' Weller is still fantastic, of course, as are Tricky and Goldie.
They've been derided as "Dadrock" in the British music press and pilloried by pop rivals for being just plain dull. But Ocean Colour Scene, a bluesy quartet from Birmingham, don't really need to care anymore.
But isn't the Later roster a bit too worthy? A bit too thoughtful dad-rock?
