Limahl Contributes to New Book on the 1980s

Limahl has contributed to the new book ‘Put The Needle On The Record’ (The 1980’s At 45 Revolutions Per Minute) by author Matthew Chojnacki

Foreword by Jake Shears of Scissor Sisters Afterword by Nick Rhodes of Duran Duran.

The definitive guide to the most musically distinctive and visually provocative era of the last millennium – the 1980’s.

This exquisitely designed book contains over 250 vinyl single covers, providing a pop-cultural kaleidoscope of imagary and an authoritative journey back to the songs and images that defined a generation.

‘Put The Needle On The Record’ features exclusive commentary and a wealth of previously unheard stories from over 100 of the 80’s biggest artistes including Annie Lennox, Duran Duran, Gary Numan, Run-DMC, The B-52’s, Erasure, ABC, OMD, The Knack, The Go-Go’s, Roxette, Bronski Beat, Devo, The Human League, Yoko Ono and Limahl.

20% of the author’s royalties from ‘Put The Needle On The Record’ will be donated to the Keep A Child Alive foundation which provides first class AIDS care, treatment, surrounding support and food for children and families affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa and India.


The book is available in beautiful hardback format here at Amazon:

This looks to be a very interesting and collectable book and one not just for Limahl fans, but fans of 80s music in general.
