David Laurie: Dare

Album Review

Read how anything went as the early 80s rebooted the rulebook.

Lengthily subtitled How Bowie And Kraftwerk Inspired The Death Of Rock’n’Roll And Invented Modern Pop Music, Dare is not an ashes-to-ashes post-mortem but a nostalgic celebration. Recalling the years 1979-1982, it psalms the early 80s’ gleeful glide into synthesisers, electronica and flamboyant creative weirdness.
