Synthesiser Heaven – “Synth Britannia” (2009)
July 25, 2012
Anyone who knows me knows that I have a special place in my heart for the music from the late 70’s through to the end of the 80’s, especially if there’s synths involved.
I stumbled across the 2009 BBC documentary Synth Britannia on YouTube (as a series of 10-12 videos I think) a little while ago and it had me entranced from start to finish.
I found it fascinating to see how artists and bands such as Human League, OMD, Joy Division/New Order, Yazoo and Gary Numan got their start and even for just for a little while, it made me wish that I was born at least 10 years earlier.
