Members of The Buggles
, in going on to participate in other acts such as Art of Noise
, helped shape much of the early electronica
scene. Their video, for better or worse, set the stage for the first three or four years of the music video genre
. While those years may not have been years that we remember without shuddering a bit (despite loving 'em), they did have a fairly profound impact on pop culture
in the mid-'80s
BTW, their famous track Video Killed the Radio Star is off the album The Age of Plastic (thanks to SansPoint for correcting me on that), which I highly recommend if you like any of the bands mentioned above. It's still available on CD. A later album of theirs is seen occasionally; it's named Adventures in Modern Recording but I think it's only on vinyl.
