Best Synthpop Bands of The Eighties
The Contenders: Page 2
They would join Yes and make another great Pop song.
They are the definition of synthpop. Vince Clarke was an electronic music pioneer. Erasure may be the least critically acclaimed of all the bands he created, but it embodies the essence of synthpop the most.
Erasure are just amazing and are probably one of the most underrated bands in the history of pop music.
My favorite band of the 80's, I find it very surprising that they never made it that big in the United States.
My young years were made bearable they listening to my favorite duo of all time. Vince and Andy always!V 1 Comment

Ultravox was me and my father's favorite band before he sadly died. Some of this band's songs were at the memorial.
Pure class there music stands the test of time...
Mick Karn's progressive improvisational basslines were indescribable. David Sylvian's vocals had a blissful, unique tone. Barbieri was incredible on the synthesizers. This band was literally insane. Mick Karn moved around stage like he was walking on water, and the funny thing is they were biggest in Japan, not the country in which they formed, England. They played with an understanding of how to create really interesting melodies and structures. Their songs weren't necessarily catchy all the time, they were made for real music fans and developed their style over time, which is why they weren't really accepted up there with the commercial likes of Duran Duran (Who completely and utterly ripped Japan off). There will never be another Japan. One of the greatest bands of all time. - KingCobalt
