All the Rage
It's 1981, and the nation is going Eurovision-crazy. A young band, Things Fall Apart, are the British hopefuls with their catchy hit, Let's Be Famous. Despite an energetic performance involving spangly silver jumpsuits and monstrous slingbacks, Europe is unimpressed. Null points to the UK.
But the band don't let go of their dream, and they persevere to become one of the most famous boy-girl pop acts of the eighties. And during their glory days they sample the cultural highlights of the decade: gunk-tanks, puffer skirts, shoulder pads, slightly sinister furry hand-puppets... Living and working together 24-7, it's little wonder that love soom blossoms in the band; and little wonder that the cracks eventually begin to show.
From their innocent early days to the their ugly last fight in the Blue Peter Garden, this is the story of a pop group - warts and all. From love and loss to bangles and boob-tubes, All the Rage is required reading for anyone who still remembers the decade that taste forgot.
