Tuesday Night Music 02 23 10

"The Lebanon" was one of the Human League's lesser-known hits. I don't remember it getting a lot of airplay on this side of the pond, which is a shame.

I was possessed to post this one because I just ran across BBC4's "Synth Britania" on Youtube. The program covers the history of Britain's synth pop explosion, starting from when everyone saw Kraftwerk and wanted to be the future. So that's early OMD, Cabaret Voltaire, pre-hot women Human League, and those who came after.

It's been split into 9 9-10 minute parts. If you've got the time, follow this link and keep going. (Gary Numan shows up in part 5)
