Whether or not you were around in the 1980s during the "New Wave" movement in pop music history - This first-rate book on the subject is definitely worth a look.

This impressive visual encyclopedia of that phenomenal era of pop-culture trends really gives the reader a thorough run-down of the eclectic music scene as it existed on both sides of the Atlantic.

Music. Fashion. MTV.

Following triumphantly in the pitiful wake of the late-1970s "Punk" movement - The 1980s' "New Wave" music scene was (IMO) an era as unique and memorable as was the "Flower Power" movement of the 1960s.

This excellent and informative pictorial encyclopedia of the "New Wave" era in pop music history is sure to spark a renewed interest in this popular cultural phenomenon.

From A-Z this glossy volume features lotsa relevant info on numerous bands who were emerging onto the scene during that dynamic decade (mainly from Britain and the USA).

(*Be sure to watch Robert Hazard's "Escalator Of Life" music-video*)
