The English new wave and dance group ABC burst onto the scene in the early 1980s when their debut album The Lexicon Of Love, produced by the in-demand Trevor Horn (dubbed ‘The Man Who Invented the Eighties’ on account of his impact on recorded culture in that era) went to Number One on the UK charts. A virtual greatest hits from the outset, The Lexicon Of Love, contains the classic singles “Poison Arrow”, “Tears Are Not Enough”, “The Look of Love (Part One)” and “All of My Heart”, distinctive sounds that gave the scene a well-dressed and sophisticated allure. The group were as impeccably turned out as their music, which is often laden with soundtrack strings and soulfully multi-tracked vocals. That’s what the fans love and can hear again on the recent studio album, The Lexicon Of Love II.

ABC went from strength to strength with a string of grand albums including the underrated Beauty Stab, the witty How To Be A… Zillionaire! and Alphabet City. Combing elements of pure pop with neo-classical arrangements and latter elements of house, disco and techno ABC remained one of the definitive acts in that era, also masters of the 12” mix, but they were far from confined to the epoch and gave us further goodies in the shape of Up and Abracadabra. They are well represented here with the studio discs – often in augmented form – joined by live and compilation sets.

The ABC name has been kept alive by their front man Martin Fry, writer of so many brilliant songs in their repertoire, and ABC’s legend ensures that whenever they perform they retain not just their loyal fan base but also a new generation of listeners eager to discover their superbly polished and unique style of music.
