ynth Britannia Plus DVD (2009)

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 they 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 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.
