About this collection
Introducing 80's RewindAfter the sombre austerity of the punk and post-punk styles of the late 70s, British pop brightened up and became positively kaleidoscopic in the 1980s when an incredibly varied range of artists emerged. The decade saw everything from pop bands and guitar-led groups to soulful sounds and stadium rock, and of course, a whole lotta synthesiser.
