Stream the conversation, recorded at this year's festival and inspired by tQ editor Luke Turner's essay in our eBook, in full

As well as the excellent music this year's Incubate hosted, the festival also continued with its conference element, curating a number of hugely interesting discussion conversations and panels. These included "Have baby boomers stolen music?", a talk inspired by Quietus editor and panel member Luke Turner's essay 'Golden Balls: How The Baby Boomers Stole Music', taken from our first eBook, Point Close All Quotes: A Quietus Anthology, published this year. The piece questions the authority of the widely-upheld belief in the 60s/70s "golden age" of music, frequently referred to as an unassailable high point, so much so that it becomes an obstacle, "choking off discourse about contemporary artists".

Discussing the idea with Turner were Mojo's Ian Harrison, frnkfrt, Gonzo (circus) and occasional tQ contributor Theo Ploeg and Volkskrant's Gijsbert Kamer, with tQ's Rory Gibb hosting. Now, courtesy of Incubate and Jef Monté from Dieper Beeld, we have a full-length video of the panel; watch it above and head here (Europe) and here (US) to get hold of the eBook.
