NEW ROMANTIC ERA

Hello and welcome back… Possibly the best era for music.. Ever.( me thinks ).. for me, As a synth loving dude, i loved this era.. The “new romantic” era starting roughly 1980 – 84 and with punk now dead ( kind of )..clubs around London  ( Blitz & st Moritz ) started to cater for a different taste, fronted by heavy synths, big hair and puffy pirate shirts … Bands like “Adam & the ants”, “spandau ballet”, “ABC”, and “Duran Duran” took to this scene like a duck to water… In Australia we had similar bands ( “real life”, “pseudo echo”, “dear enemy” and “kids in the kitchen” ) that were sort of in this “new romantic” category.. So i have decided, for your musical pleasure to look at my top 10 “New romantic” bands and remember the best era of synth music.. enjoy..
