Their dream was to destroy rock music. The result was the creation of some of the most influential sounds in pop music.
Made in Sheffield documents the evolution of the Human League, Cabaret Voltaire, Heaven 17 & ABC, who emerged from Sheffield’s music scene in the post-punk era.
Rare archive footage, soundtrack and exclusive interviews with the famous, almost famous and not famous at all, pull you directly into the Sheffield music scene, complete with fanzines, nightclubs, weird bands, DIY record labels and all the ambition and creativity that made that time so special.
Loaded with endearing moments and humour, it captures the essence of the seldom-portrayed aftermath of Punk and the spirit of the early 80s British New Wave movement.
Featuring: Phil Oakey (Human League), Martyn Ware & Ian Craig Marsh (Heaven 17), Jarvis Cocker (Pulp), Chris Watson (Cabaret Voltaire), Stephen Singleton (Vice Versa/ABC), John Peel and many more.
