Systems Of Romance
Systems of Romance, released on 8 September 1978, is the third album by British new wave band Ultravox. It was the final recording for the group with original lead singer, lyricist and co-composer John Foxx, and their first album without guitarist Stevie Shears, who had left the band. Shears was replaced by Robin Simon, making his first and only appearance on an Ultravox album. Though not a commercial success, Systems of Romance had a significant influence on the electropop music that came after it.
Penthouse And Pavement (Special Edition)
Penthouse and Pavement is the debut studio album by the English synthpop band Heaven 17. It was originally released in September 1981, on the label Virgin.
" Fascist Groove Thang" was released as a single, but did not achieve chart success partly due to a ban by the BBC. The album sold reasonably well, but was not a great commercial success on release. It has since been regarded as "an important outing", is included in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die, and was re-released in 2010 in a three-disc special edition. The title track was included on the soundtrack of the 1993 erotic thriller film Sliver.

Living Ornaments '80 is a live album by British musician Gary Numan, first released in 1981. It was also issued as a limited edition box set with Living Ornaments '79 the same year. The original release was recorded at the Hammersmith Odeon on 16 September 1980, as a record of Numan's "Teletour".
An expanded and remastered version was reissued on a double CD in 2005. The tapes of the full concert from which the original album's ten tracks were culled have been lost, but in 2004 a mixing console recording of a complete song set from another UK concert was discovered and deemed to be of sufficient quality to release commercially. This set included, at that time, the only official live recordings of the tracks "Telekon", from the album of the same name, and "Stories", from Numan's then-forthcoming Dance album. A live version of "Telekon" has since appeared on the Telekon – Live album, recorded during Numan's Telekon Classic Album Tour of 2006, although no further live versions of "Stories" have been officially released.
Deception was to be the last album released by the British new wave band The Colourfield. During the recording of the album Karl Shale left during the sessions.

The Warp of Pure Fun
The Warp of Pure Fun is an album by Paul Haig.
After the release of Paul Haig's first album with Island, Rhythm Of Life, tracks were recorded for a follow-up during 1984, including. The Only Truth, produced by Bernard Sumner and Donald Johnson of A Certain Ratio. However, due to lack of sales for Rhythm, Island got cold feet and decided to shelve the unreleased album entirely.
Rather than release the cancelled set on Crepuscule, it was decided to combine half the album with new songs recorded throughout 1985. Haig launched his fightback later in the year with a powerful single, "Heaven Help You Now", the lead single from The Warp Of Pure Fun.
Produced with Alan Rankine, it was a more involving, honest set than its predecessor, offering warmer songs and arrangements in place of programmed rhythm tracks, though without entirely abandoning club appeal. In the UK, The Warp Of Pure Fun appeared on another short-lived Crepuscule offshoot, Operation Afterglow, but while the album fared well as an independent release, Afterglow failed to propel it into the national chart.
Kissing The Pink
Naked is the debut studio album by English new wave and synth-pop band Kissing the Pink, released in February 1983 by Magnet Records.

The song was their best performing single in the UK, and the only one to break the top 75. It is their only album to feature singer Sylvia Griffin who left the band before the album was completed.
32 years after its original release, Naked was reissued in 2015 as a remastered special edition CD by Cherry Red, which includes the 12 original album tracks plus seven related bonus tracks all sourced from the original master tapes.

The inner sleeve features song lyrics on one side and a lifesize Hannya Mask on the other.
'Guest' musicians on the album include Ian Underwood from Frank Zappa's band and David Walldroop. Mark and Bob Mothersbaugh of the band Devo play on the song "Rhythmic Itch", and "Wrong Way Round" features a cameo from Ian Dury as a fairground barker.
Hugh Cornwell was advised to start a solo career in case of The Stranglers breaking up due to the end of the punk-rock scene. A cover version of Cream's "White Room" was the only single to be released from the album, backed with an instrumental version of "Losers in a Lost Land", which failed to chart; however, "Wired" was included on the Stranglers' "Don't Bring Harry" EP which reached No. 41 in the UK Singles Chart.

The Icicle Works
The Small Price of a Bicycle is the second studio album by The Icicle Works. The album was released in 1985 and charted at number 55 in the UK Despite the success of the band's first album in North America, it was unreleased in both the US and Canada, with Arista Records in the US memorably rejecting it as "punk-rock demos".

Adam & The Ants
Dirk Wears White Sox is the debut studio album by English new wave band Adam and the Ants. It was released on 30 October 1979 by record label Do It. It was the first number one album on the UK Independent Albums Chart when the chart debuted in Record Week in 1980.
Beauty Stab is the second studio album by English pop band ABC. It was originally released in November 1983, on the labels Neutron, Mercury and Vertigo. The album was recorded over a period of three months between August and September 1983, in sessions that took place at Sarm Studios East and West, Townhouse Studios and Abbey Road Studios. It was a departure from the stylised production of the band's debut album, The Lexicon of Love and featured a more guitar-oriented sound.
The album was produced by ABC with Gary Langan, who was the audio engineer on the band's first album. The band employed the rhythm section of Andy Newmark and Alan Spenner both of whom had recently recorded and toured with Roxy Music at the time. The cover photography was by Gered Mankowitz.
On release, the album was received negatively by the majority of music critics. In a 1995 article, music journalist Simon Reynolds listed Beauty Stab among "the great career-sabotage LPs in pop history". In retrospect, the band members themselves have been quite vocal in that they were less satisfied with the album with founding member Stephen Singleton leaving the band soon after promotion for the album was completed.
