Text size Aa Aa

Sydney’s Powerhouse museum of science and design has plugged into the demographic with an exhibition all about a decade of money and excess, new music and bright clothing; the 80s.

Mobile phones big as bricks became affordable and popular, MTV exploded onto our screens, and Rap became the musical lingua franca of youth worldwide.

Until the end of the year the museum’s website will be delving deeper into the decade’s music, film and TV, and video games with contemporary reviews of some of the releases.
