best post-punk music in Europe was electronic music & for
five years the best electronic music came from Sheffield.
Made in Sheffield documents the evolution of the Human League,
Cabaret Voltaire, Heaven 17 & ABC, who emerged from Sheffield's
music scene in the late 70's. Their dream was to destroy rock
music. The result was the creation of some of the most influential
sounds in pop music.
Rare archive footage, soundtrack & exclusive interviews with
the famous, almost famous & not famous at all pull you directly
into the Sheffield music scene complete with fanzines, nightclubs,
weird bands, DIY record labels & all the ambition & creativity
that made that time so special.
Loaded with endearing moments & humour, it captures the essence
of the seldom portrayed aftermath of Punk & the spirit of
the early 80's British New Wave movement.
