In their own words.


Introducing Sweet Dreams: The Story of the New Romantics—an oral history of a seismic decade of British pop culture, from 1975 to 1985, told through the words of the musicians, producers, artists and journalists who made it happen. Get your hands on this definitive literary documentary in first edition signed by author Dylan Jones OBE, strictly available while stock lasts.


Sweet Dreams


From the remnants of post-punk, through club culture, the Blitz kids and electronica, Sweet Dreams unfolds as a chronological history through curated interviews, quotes, reflections and asides. It’s an in-depth retrospective and a round-table chat with an astonishing line-up of the period’s key players who, together, took a teenage subculture and made it mainstream. A mainstream musical and visual style that defined the decade and took the charts, both here and in the US, by storm.
