Once again Part Time Punks devotes a dance nite to the sound of the New Romantic scene of the early 1980s -- a scene which was originally both a rebellion against punk and an embrace of the glam era of the early 1970s that preceded it -- but ended up producing some of the biggest names in 1980s synthpop (thanks largely to a new televisual innovation by the name of MTV. In terms of style it rejected the austerity and anti-fashion stance of punk and embraced the androgynous.  So what does that mean for the dancefloor? Expect a lot of 80s sounds by the likes of Duran Duran, Ultravox, Flock Of Seagulls, Human League, Visage, Spandau Ballet, Japan, Tears For Fears, Adam & The Ants, Culture Club, ABC, O.M.D., Soft Cell, Gary Numan, Depeche Mode, Dead Or Alive, Echo & The Bunnymen, Psychedelic Furs -- PLUS a smattering of the 70s sounds that inspired the movement -- ie David Bowie, T-Rex, Lou Reed, Iggy Pop, Brian Eno
