Goin’ Old School: Eurythmics, Bronski Beat, Art Of Noise & Max Headroom

Goin’ Old School isn’t a trip down music memory lane, it’s a mugging in the dark alleyway of nostalgia:

ZZT experimentalists The Art Of Noise teamed up with the best thing on TV in 1986, Max Headroom, and released ‘Paranoimia’, an ode to Max’s insanity.

Future basslines and vocoding in Eurythmics ‘Sexcrime (Nineteen Eighty Four)’, the soundtrack to the movie adaptation of Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four, in, well, 1984.

Sommerville era Bronski Beat best tune, 1984’s ‘Why?’.
