Artist’s Information:

The Buggles were a UK electro-pop band formed in 1977 consisting of Trevor Horn (bass guitar, guitar, percussion, and vocals), and Geoff Downes (percussion and keyboards).

The Buggles’ sound was characterised by a deliberately synthetic quality in keeping with the technological subject matter of their songs.

The Buggles had a smash hit with the first single from their debut album, The Age Of Plastic. Video Killed The Radio Star was famously the 1st music video ever played on MTV (on August 1, 1981).

Song Information:

“Video Killed the Radio Star” is a song first recorded by Woolley & the Camera Club (with Thomas Dolby on keyboards) for his album English Garden, which was a hit in Canada. It was later recorded by the British synthpop/New Wave group The Buggles, released as their debut single on 7 September 1979, on Island Records from their debut album The Age of Plastic. It celebrates the golden days of radio, describing a singer whose career is cut short by television. The song topped the music chart in several countries and has been covered by many recording artists. Its music video was the first shown on MTV in the U.S. at 12:01am on 1 August 1981. The song was number 40 on VH1′s 100 Greatest One-Hit Wonders of the 80′s.
