Not like it doesn't now, but I love how the technology defined the sound back then.

Who knew Australia had such an amazing synthpop scene?

I love synthpop and the electronic sound. It seems I always have something new to learn about it.

What would you know about synthpop anyway grandpa? Bit after your time, innit? Go listen to your skiffle records.

As someone who didn't stop clubbing until about 1994, that would be a resolute no.

It was all a bit too white for my tastes until Chicago and Detroit got their hands on it though.

vronsky: Any mention of Australian synthpop must include a link to a Severed Heads video. They usually get lumped in with the EBM/Industrial crowd, but that's mostly because of the name, I think.

Oh yes Sys Rq. Thanks, I like that.

Tom Ellard of Severed Heads has a blog. And an entertaining read it is too.
