Made in Sheffield: The Birth of Electronic Pop

The emergence of punk in the '70s founded a musical revolution for the dreary English industrial city of Sheffield. Wood's documentary explains the history of events that led to the birth of a scene where a number of upstart hacks became both underground cult heroes, and mainstream superstars. Featuring interviews with members of Cabaret Voltaire, the Human League and Heaven 17, ABC, as well as an inspired Jarvis Cocker and John Peel, Made in Sheffield is a riveting story for any fan of the acts featured or the sub-genre/era of music. A nice extra also comes in separate interviews with the musicians, which sheds more light on the occurrences. (Plexifilm,
