Prompted by me finding a box of 80's albums on tape in my loft.

My nominations:-

Depeche Mode
Simple Minds
Talk Talk
The The
Tears for Fears

why restrict this to bands? I want to include Shakin Stevens

I used to wear the whitest of white socks with my flecked black baggie trousers and black slip-ons. It took me some time to adjust once they went out of fashion.
