Classix Nouveaux - Is it a Dream? - 1982

This English 80s New Wave band only managed to acheive one Top 40 hit single in the UK, reaching #11 in April 1982. It was taken from the album La Verite which was also released in April of the same year. It just missed out on the Top 40 album charts, peaking at #44.

Like the album, the follow-up single Because You're Young also failed to reach the Top 40 peaking at only #43.

Overall, the band released eleven singles during the 1980's, four of which made it into the Top 50, but failed to break the Top 40.

Lead singer Sal Solo wrote or co-wrote the majority of the band's songs alongside Mik Sweeney.
