track 1, side 1. - 1981

track 1, side 1. - 1981

Playing tracks by

Human League , The, Heaven 17, Tom Tom Club, Japan, Siouxsie And The Banshees and more.

open a programme with a massive glaring error. the pet shop boys - surburbia was actually released five years later so let's just say they were ahead of their time.
the remaining hour and 50 minutes stick to the script. in a year of synths, goths and pirates all of those genres get some exposure. bauhaus and siouxsie represent the dark side. bow wow wow and adam and the ants ode to s&m get an outing, and synth based music get a whole heap of tracks mostly in their 12" mix form. depeche mode, human league and pioneers kraftwerk all feature. other albums released in said year from boho rickie lee jones, tom tom club, japan, the psychedelic furs and motorhead among the many.
track 1, side 1. is broadcast to the masses the third wednesday every month between 4-6pm on phonic fm.

On the plus side Suburbia was a great way to open any show! I've opened with the wrong track a few times as well :)
