Three CD box set. This set explores the arrival of synth pop and the dawn of a new musical era. 58 tracks including songs by Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark, The Human League, Ultravox, Toyah, Spandau Ballet, Kim Wilde, Philip Lynott, The Buggles - And Underground Figureheads - Fad Gadget, Suicide, M, John Foxx, D. A. F., Dalek I Love You, Visage, The Residents, Yello, and many others. As the dust settled following the punk rock explosion, countless new genres began to solidify and coalesce. Chief among these, in a field of it's own, was Synth Pop - a suitably descriptive umbrella for the new electronic pop sound which had emerged over the previous couple of years. Musik Music Musique captures a snapshot of this milestone moment in music. Independent novelties and curiosities sit alongside big budget pop perfection. Artists who would go on to sell millions take their first steps into this new landscape whilst others make the briefest contribution before the wave moves on. For every too-cool-for-school Human League there is a so-far-out-it's-in Yello. In retrospect, the speed at which these new instruments and production techniques were absorbed by such a variety of artists astounds and confounds. Not to be confused with so many synth-pop-by-numbers budget releases, Musik Music Musique is an essential and insightful compendium of a place and time unique in musical chronology.
