Although they were though of us primarily as a British New Wave band, ABC actually drew from a lot of American R&B to create their music. This sleek amalgamation was created some of the catchier Synth Pop of the era which also charted well. Many of the New Wave associated bands had a short shelf life, though ABC had a fairly decent run. They didn’t make it to the 90’s, but reflection of their era has generated new respect for them.
