All What's On

I Think I Might Be… New Romantic!

August 15 - August 17

Remember OMD before OMG, Phil Oakey’s fringe, and onyx ashtrays? Tales of growing up before the New Romantics landed in 80s Leeds, with threads of a Catholic upbringing, Irish mother and our Kelly – sister, not the rapper. How Steve Strange, the Spandau Ballet boys and synth players called Roland marked the end of a black and white childhood of Artex ceilings and… the Black and White Minstrels. How a move South means struggling to not let flat vowels and the “Northern” slip out, and only taking showers to avoid saying “bath”.
