Alongside established names, such as Eurythmics, Simple Minds and Duran Duran, are punk legends Crass, Black Flag, the Ramones and the Damned, and industrial noise pioneers Einstürzende Neubauten, Foetus and Test Dept.More diverse subjects include writers Raymond Carver and Kathy Acker, LSD guru Timothy Leary, explorer Christina Dodwell, historian Christopher Andrew, film-maker Alex Cox and tabloid editor Derek Jameson.Full list of artists included: Abwärts Afrika Bambaataa The Alarm Alien Sex Fiend Andy Partridge Annie Anxiety Anti-Nowhere League Arthur Baker The Bangles Bauhaus Billy Bragg Black Flag Blancmange Blue Aeroplanes Bo Diddley Bobby Vee Cabaret Voltaire Christian Lunch Cocteau Twins Conflict Crass The Cult Cynthia Scott Dali’s Car The Damned Dancing Did Danielle Dax Danse Society David Cunningham David Thomas Deborah Evans Del Shannon Delta 5 Do Re Mi Dream Syndicate Duran Duran Einstürzende Neubauten Eric Bogosian Eurythmics The Fall Feargal Sharkey Felt Flag of Convenience Flux of Pink Indians Foetus Frank Chickens Frank Chickens Frankie Ford Fun Boy Three The Go-Betweens The Godfathers The Higsons Holger Czukay Holger Hiller Honor Blackman The Icicle Works The Impossible Dreamers The Jam Jerry Lee Lewis The Jesus and Mary Chain Joan Jett Julian Barnes Kevin Hewick Killing Joke Klaxon 5 La Fura Dels Baus Laurie Anderson Level 42 Linton Kwesi Johnson Lloyd Cole Loose Tubes Lora Logic Marine Girls The Marvelettes Medium Medium Minimal Compact The Monochrome Set The Moodists The Nightingales Nona Hendryx Orange Juice Palais Schaumburg The Passions Pete Shelley Propaganda Raymonde Rick Nelson Rubella Ballet Simple Minds Slade Strawberry Switchblade Suzanne Vega Swan’s Way Test Dept The Ramones The Reflections The Scientists The Shillelagh Sisters The Slits The Smiths The Triffids The Waitresses Thee Milkshakes Thomas Leer Tom Silverman Tom Verlaine Torch Song Tracey Thorn Troy Tate TV21 Twisted Sister UK Decay Violent Femmes Virna Lindt Wim Mertens X-mal Deutschland Zounds.
