Especiales- Synth Britannia (documental BBC)

Aquí un documental  hecho por la BBC acerca del synth pop en el que se hace un trazado histórico de un periodo musical que heredó los logros de la electrónica europeista aparecida con Kraftwerk, la mirada del Bowie de  "Low", y el punk que alentó a la juventud británica de los 70's a explorar nuevos sonidos a partir de los descubrimientos ocurridos en los años previos.


Documentary following a generation of post-punk musicians who took the synthesiser from the experimental fringes to the centre of the pop stage.
In the late 1970s, small pockets of electronic artists including the Human League, Daniel Miller and Cabaret Volatire were inspired by Kraftwerk and JG Ballard and dreamt of the sound of the future against the backdrop of bleak, high-rise Britain.
The crossover moment came in 1979 when Gary Numan's appearance on Top of the Pops with Tubeway Army's Are Friends Electric heralded the arrival of synthpop. Four lads from Basildon known as Depeche Mode would come to own the new sound whilst post-punk bands like Ultravox, Soft Cell, OMD and Yazoo took the synth out of the pages of the NME and onto the front page of Smash Hits.
By 1983, acts like Pet Shop Boys and New Order were showing that the future of electronic music would lie in dance music.
Contributors include Philip Oakey, Vince Clarke, Martin Gore, Bernard Sumner, Gary Numan and Neil Tennant. (BBC)
