Purdy presents Face Music 79-81

Another set from the multi-flavoured world of Mr. Kevin Purdy exploring the deep well of spiky pop perfection that was prominent throughout the UK in times gone by.

“Journeying into mad, wonderful and heady world of late 70’s early 80’s music from the UK, with a focus on sonic adventurers who were quickly re-shaping and re-inventing the sounds preceeding them. Artists such as Magazine, Wire, XTC, Orange Juice, the Slits and Rip Rig & Panic are joined by famous faves like Bowie and Roxy Music.” – Purdy
