The definitive oral history of the New Romantics.
Sweet Dreams charts the rise of the New Romantics, a scene that grew out of the remnants of the post-punk period and developed alongside club culture, ska, electronica, and goth.
One of the most creative entrepreneurial periods since the Sixties, the era had a huge influence on the growth of broadcast media. Not only did it visually define the decade, it was the catalyst for the Second British Invasion, when the US charts would be colonised by British pop music, making it one of the most powerful cultural exports since the Beatles.
Sweet Dreams were made of this.
