Weʼre raising £800 to help DECADE 77

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Hello, and a warm welcome to everyone who has joined the page recently.

As many of you know, I began DECADE 77-87 just over a year ago. It was my attempt to try to recapture some of the excitement felt when opening up the weekly music papers (NME, Melody Maker, Sounds, etc.) to read reviews and interviews with bands that mattered (and still do) – all from that marvellously rich and innovative period from 1977 to 1987.

What I begin, you take forward by posting such wonderful responses – whether a shared memory of buying a single or attending the same gig. Thank you; the page would mean little without your contributions.

Running the page is a one-man operation. I write and research the articles, and edit the videos, often reinventing them entirely. This takes almost an entire day of unpaid work. If you could see fit to make a small donation then I would be genuinely grateful.

Thank you and best wishes, Paul
