In this issue, we gain exclusive access to the inside story via eye-opening interviews with some of the main players in the genre, from frontline pioneers such as Marc Almond, OMD, Thomas Dolby and Richard James Burgess through to the full-on synth-pop sensations that brought the new sound to the mainstream, including world-conquering powerhouse trio A-ha and genius 80s hitmaker Howard Jones. Plus, there’s interviews with New Order’s Bernard Sumner, Midge Ure and China Crisis’ Gary Daly to add more colour to the story.
