1985-1990: The A List

Genre: Rock; Producer (group): Mute

This British foursome turned out some of the most astute punk anthems of the late ’70s. They took a break from each other in 1980, explored the ambient-to-experimental side of things on their own, then regrouped in ‘85, a cerebral, complex, and vastly different band. On 1985-1990: The A List They’ve traded in simple punk riffs for subtle, fluid pop, but unfortunately sacrificed their most compelling element — gripping angst — along the way. B
