1980s politics blog from TV historian Tony McMahon

From the classifieds in a music paper in 1981. The full range of teen cults that proliferated in the UK in the late 70s and early 80s. You have the tale end of punk with the Cockney Rejects, the new wave with bands like The Police, synth pop with Human League, more traditional 70s rock with Led Zeppelin, a ska/2Tone symbol, New Romantics with Duran Duran and a nod to reggae with UB40.
