The first in-depth book about British Pop's most flamboyant movement
After punk, pop culture wanted to dazzle again. Fashion and style were the means and the New Romantics took them to the limit. But the New Romantic movement has more than just a reaction against the anti-glamour punk... and the music was only part of the story. The blubs and cabarets, the clothes, the glitter, the make-up, the hair, the fashion, the attitude and the style all made up The Look - and The Look was everything. The New Romantics explores the varied roots of the movement, using interviews with the stars and tracing a range of influences from David Bowie to the movie Cabaret and the Berlin of the 1930s.

Includes separate sections on: The Myth Of Berlin, Futurism, The Influence of Drag
and the bands: Kraftwerk, Depeche Mode, Soft Cell, Spandau Ballet

Music journalist and travel writer, Dave Rimmer is the author of Like Punk Never Happened and Once Upon A Time In The East. His work has appeared in many magazines, including Q and The Face. He divides his time between London and Berlin.
