Reseña del editor:

When The Human League released Dare, their seminal third album, in October 1981, little did they realise that they had created the soundtrack and the look for a whole new era. With its Vogue-inspired artwork, and infectious mix of nightclub pop and post-punk experimentation, the record set a completely new agenda: entirely of the moment, cerebral yet danceable, aesthetically unabashed and wryly post-modern. It went on to become one of the biggest-selling albums of the decade, spawning four major hit singles – including No.1s on both sides of the Atlantic – and made an instant celebrity of the band’s colourful frontman, Phil Oakey.

In Electric Dreams David Buckley, the acclaimed author of Strange Fascination: David Bowie – The Definitive Story, charts The Human League’s unlikely rise from avant-garde veterans of the punk wars to international pop sensations, revealing how a small group of bands in Sheffield – and a lot of synthesisers – created the music that came to define a decade: electro-pop.

Biografía del autor:

DAVID BUCKLEY is a regular contributor to Mojo magazine and the author of six books, including his as yet unrivalled biography of David Bowie, Strange Fascination, which the Guardian described as ‘definitive’.
