Made in Sheffield: The Birth of Electronic Pop

Synopsis
Documents the Sheffield music scene from 1977 to 1982, which saw the emergence of the Human League, Cabaret Voltaire, Heaven 17 & ABC with their brand of electronic music. The film captures the essence of the seldom portrayed aftermath of Punk and the spirit of the early 80s British New Wave movement. Includes rare archive footage and interviews with Phil Oakley of the Human League, Jarvis Cocker of Pulp, Martyn Ware and Ian Craig Marsh of Heaven 17, Stephen Singleton of Vice Versa/ABC, Chris Watson of Cabaret Voltaire and John Peel.
