1980s Synth Music

I recently watched a BBC programme called “Synth Britannia” … after which I ended up adding a bunch of extra stuff to my Spotify collection. When I was going through the OMD back catalogue on Spotify, I noticed the album cover artwork for their “Dazzle Ships” LP from 1983. And I was pretty sure that I had actually bought that album back in the 1980s. So I had a dig around the house and actually found it. So rather than put it back into storage, I’ve put it on my wall for a bit:

Apparently, I bought the 1987 reissue, which makes sense because I would have been too young in 1983. It’s also interesting, because people say that nobody bought the album when it originally came out anyway. There’s also a wikipedia article, if you’re interested.
