THE END

Hello and welcome back... Well, that it for me...

After many times of wondering what to do with this site, i have decided to no longer update Electronic80s.

BUT

Its all not bad news, i am going to put more effort into my sister site 'soundz80s'. This week on Soundz80s we are taking a look at the new album from 80s band ABC (The Lexicon of Love 2) and another 80s band called Rational Youth (remember them) with their new album called 'This side of the Border' (my new fav album, sounding so 80s)

So check out my sister site 'Soundz80s' Click Here because that's where it happening..

As with Electronic80s, i have ran out of ideas and energy and after 708 posts, i feel its time to move to something fresh and RAD sounding, because its not just any band makes it on my sister site..'Soundz80s', i'm very picky who makes it so you can be sure that the music is going to be pretty good.

 Take a peek around, Oh and theirs also my Twitter site as well... CLICK HERE
