Hello everyone!

New year, new decade on our journey through the decades of glorious British pop music, we now enter perhaps the most controversial of them, the sometimes flamboyant, sometimes on point 1980s.

 

As with the previous Word Scramble, bear in mind that these are all British bands that were formed during the โ€˜80s, as perhaps you may associate some of them more with the โ€˜90s when they were more popular. A few of them are very obvious ones (Madchester anyone?) whilst others are more left (some very left in this case) field picks. Also, no solo artists, just bands.
