WMNF presents The British Invasion 4: 1975-1979
The British are coming, the British are coming…we give up!
The 60’s had ended but England’s audio assault on the states continued in the late 70s as progressive rock gave way to new wave. While some of the English bands of the sixties and early seventies continued to make good music. the 1975-79 period was marked by a plethora of new English bands giving fresh energy to rock.
