Girls and boys: sex and British pop

6 November 2005

Part three of a four part series deals with the 1980’s as a decade in British pop where the element of sex becomes increasingly important. That is, until the AIDS epidemic rears its ugly head in the mid-80’s.
Kim appears briefly in this episode, explaining how she was styling herself more on Chrissie Hynde from the Pretenders than anyone else. Women in pop had a very tough, rough image in the early 1980’s, which was important because it was still a very male-dominated environment she was working in.
