Sheffield, England was a little known hotbed of electronic music in the late 70s. An amazing lineup of bands all emerged from this depressed and forgotten city, such as: Cabarete Voltaire, Heaven 17, The Human League, Artery, Def Leppard, ABC, Pulp, The Extras, 2.3, Clock DVA, I’m So Hollow and The Comsat Angels.
Don’t You Want Me, by The Human League, is the biggest single to come from this amazing collection of bands, but it is by no means the final statement. In fact, it was really the beginning of the end. If you are not familiar with any of these bands (minus Def Leppard) I highly recommend going back to the beginning of this movement and having a listen.
Here is the video for, Don’t You Want Me.
