Books Info:

Electric Dreams free pdf 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.
