EIGHTIES superstars Buggles, the first band to be played on MTV, have their ‘lost’ second album Adventures In Modern Recording released next week.
And it’s clear why the album, which features production from Shepshed’s Bruce Woolley, never hit the heights of The Age Of Plastic and the stratospheric Video Killed The Radio Star.
Because while the distinctive eighties synthpop sound and playful production carries through, there’s a lack of killer hook throughout - with singles from the LP like Beatnik and I Am A Camera feeling their age.
Nevertheless, backed by 10 bonus tracks, fans of classic ‘80s pop will welcome the chance to finally fully explore Adventures In Modern Recording.
