A leading light of the New Wave scene of the early-’80s, ABC took the pop baton from the likes of David Bowie and Roxy Music and ran it up the UK top ten.

In 1982, ABC’s debut release, The Lexicon of Love spawned seminal synth-driven hits such as “The Look of Love”, “Poison Arrow”, and “Tears Are Not Enough”: Now founder Martin Fry has unleashed The Lexicon of Love II reaching number 5 in the UK album chart with singles “Viva Love” and “The Flames of Desire”.

With his ageless voice and ear for timeless hooks, Martin Fry will take you on a journey back to 1982 and everywhere in between at Camper Calling 2016.

This is the sound of an old master falling not far short of a standard that his youthful self set very high indeed.
