This meticulously researched book documents the frequently overlooked British electronic pop revolution of the 70s/80s, a period of transformation, innovation and some of the most iconic records in pop history – many created in Sheffield.  Richard Evans has worked in the music industry for over thirty years including work with Andy Bell, Vince Clarke and Erasure. This talk, with film and music clips, reveals stories of the pioneers from this golden age of pop and shows its lasting musical impact.
