Product Notes

Part of the early-1980s great explosion of pop music (witness: Squeeze, Elvis Costello, Joe Jackson) to have any real impact, an accident of fate-titled "Video Killed the Radio Star" inextricably links the Buggles to the rise of MTV. Unfortunate for the band''s future, the two best Buggles tracks (the other, "Clean Clean") were cowritten with Bruce Woolley, who simultaneously released them (with less success) with his new band, The Camera Club. The artificial sound of these comparatively primitive keyboards and drum machines, once embraced by nihilist popsters on the edge of punk, has since mutated (Gary Numan, Eno, Woodentops, etc.) into the all-but-voiceless electronic music of the late ''90s. Regardless, the Buggles manifested a handful of pop gems in science fiction clothing. And why not? We still read Bradbury and Heinlein and Arthur C. Clarke. Oddly, what once seemed such smart and jaded music now plays as the voice of joyous optimism. Go figure. --Grant Alden

5 out of 5 stars #1 on my OCD Rotation list, October 31, 2007
By New Wave-Aholic
This highly underrated album has been spun so many times in my personal collection, both on vinyl and CD, that I recently purchased the remastered disc - that contains bonus tracks! Amazing! Forget "Video Killed the Radio Star" - although an epic lead off single, it pales in comparison to the rest of the album. Space pop, weird synth, Astro Boy references - truly a MUST for all New Wave fans!
