Director Gregor Jordan's screen adaptation of The Informers, a book of short stories by Bret Easton Ellis, is set in "Los Angeles, 1983," and this album of songs (not to be confused with another album containing Christopher Young's score) consists of synth pop tracks from that era, plus some new recordings made in that style.

Overview

Director Gregor Jordan's screen adaptation of The Informers, a book of short stories by Bret Easton Ellis, is set in "Los Angeles, 1983," and this album of songs (not to be confused with another album containing Christopher Young's score) consists of synth pop tracks from that era, plus some new recordings made in that style. Whoever chose this music focused on one-hit wonders Men Without Hats, A Flock of Seagulls, and Gary Numan, with a couple of lesser hits by Pat Benatar and Wang Chung, and a song by Simple Minds that was not a hit. (By the way, the Wang Chung song, "Dance Hall Days," dates from January 1984, making it slightly anachronistic.) 7Ray provides "The Devil Made Me Do It," which calls to mind another one-hit wonder of the period, Soft Cell, and "Tainted Love." The team of Justin Meldal-Johnsen, Jason Falkner, and Justin Stanley (with, in one case, Dave Palmer) adds some other tracks in an early-'80s synth pop mode. None of it is likely to spark a revival of interest in the style.
