National Album Day adds more 80s ambassadors to the party

National Album Day

The third edition of National Album Day will take place on 10 Oct and, remember, this year it’s an 80s special. All day it will be illegal to listen to anything but albums from the 80s. Well, listening to LPs from the 1980s will be strongly encouraged. I’m not completely certain on the actual legalities.

What I am certain about, however, is that Jazzie B, Kim Wilde, Martin Fry and Carol Decker have just been named as ambassadors of the whole thing. In that role, they join already announced Billy Ocean, Psychedelic Furs, Toyah Wilcox and non-80s chancers Blossoms and La Roux.

“I’ve always loved albums”, says Jazzie B, getting stuck right in.

“An album can be a ticket for the greatest journey that lasts a lifetime”, adds Kim Wilde, in a joint statement with her dad Marty, for some reason.

“I am proud to have been a small part of the most diversely creative era in music”, chips in Carol Decker, somewhat controversially.

“Growing up listening to everything from Bowie to the Buzzcocks there were albums released that, hand on heart, saved my life”, reckons Martin Fry, slightly unconvincingly.

So, you heard them, get yourself a ticket and love some albums from the most diversely creative era in music – it’s guaranteed to save your life. For younger readers, there is information on what albums actually are here.
