Disco wasn't really an 80s thing though, you'd mostly want to skip the 70s if you want to avoid it. Plus its not like synths were the only thing happening in the 80s.

I have no record of any of those bands in my record cabinet
But even then
Human league 1977
OMD 1978
Duran Duran 1978
DeBarge 1979
Klymax 1979
Atlantic Starr 1979.

Leaves us with A-HA, HOward Jones and Nik Kershaw.
Well I obviousy don't know much about this music, but would you reckon these bands/artists have made good albums you would actually own/love to own and play from begnning to end?

you said "arose" not "formed"

obviously they only got popular in the 80s

i like most of the British acts, i have to say their singles are far better than the other songs on their full-length albums, but they're not without their charms

He was talking about bands that arose in the 80s so that's what I gave him. I could just as easily do bands that peaked in the 80s, many of which would have arisen in the 70s.
