The Seventies site proudly joins the Decades Project! No one cares. Well, I do - this is an attempt to make something decent of this mess, instead of consigning some strange sites to the far corners of the Institute of Official Cheer.

Of all the decades, this one is the most difficult. There’s a notion in the minds of some that the 70s were a carefree time, cool and kitschy and fun! and innocent, in a peculiar fashion. It was not. For one thing, there was peculiar fashion. For another - well, consider this site a brief against the nostalgia that inevitably attends any bygone time. Every era has its good points and regrettable trends, but for sheer idiocy, ugliness, meretricious music, televised banality and general malaise the 70s are unparalleled.

Trust me on this. I was there.
