Musik Music Musique: 1980 The Dawn of Synthpop

3CD synth-pop set explores the very beginnings of the movement

Cherry Red will issue Musik Music Musique in July, a new three-disc various artists compilation that explores the arrival of synth-pop.

This collection – subtitled ‘1980 The Dawn of Synth Pop’  – focuses on that one year and songs by household names (OMD, The Human League, Ultravox, Toyah, Spandau Ballet, The Buggles) rub shoulders tracks from the likes of Fad Gadget, Dalek I Love You, The Residents along with some forgotten gems and lesser-known curios.

There’s 58 tracks in total and this 3CD set comes with sleeve notes by Mat Smith (who writes for Electronic Sound magazine).

Musik Music Musique will be released on 31 July 2020.
