Hello, world. I’m MacDara Conroy, and this is my blog.


I dunno whether there’s something funny in the air, but there seems to be a whole rash of 80’s synth-pop compilations coming out at the moment.

And I want one.

Specifically one that has, and I’m completely serious about this, To Cut A Long Story Short by Spandau Ballet, Wishing by A Flock Of Seagulls, something by Kraftwerk, and those two Gary Numan tracks – you know, the only ones anyone can remember.

This one almost fits the bill (no Cars, unfortunately), but is it worth spending all that money for only a handful of songs?
