In our latest Classic Pop Presents special edition, we take a look at the some of the biggest icons of synth-pop. In this issue, we gain exclusive access to the inside story via eye-opening interviews with some of the main players in the genre, from frontline pioneers such as Marc Almond, OMD, Thomas Dolby and Richard James Burgess through to the full-on synth-pop sensations that brought the new sound to the mainstream, including world-conquering powerhouse trio A-ha and genius 80s hitmaker Howard Jones. Plus, there’s interviews with New Order’s Bernard Sumner, Midge Ure and China Crisis’ Gary Daly to add more colour to the story.
Also inside, we take an in-depth look at pivotal classic albums from Tears For Fears, Sparks, Ultravox and David Bowie, as well as exploring Eurythmics’ sensational full catalogue from start to finish.
Lastly, there’s a rundown of our favourite deep cuts from the synth-underground, a feature on the technology that shaped some of the golden era’s biggest hits, and we throw some much-needed light on some of the cult figures and lesser-known greats that helped forge the genre.
This item will be dispatched from 24th September 2020.
