The Buggles were an English new wave and synth-pop band formed in London in 1977. The band’s lineup consisted of Trevor Horn (vocals, bass, keyboards) and Geoff Downes (keyboards, drums). The Buggles are best known for their 1980 hit single “Video Killed the Radio Star,” which was the first music video to be played on MTV and became a global success. The band released two studio albums, “The Age of Plastic” (1980) and “Adventures in Modern Recording” (1981), before disbanding in 1981. Horn and Downes went on to become founding members of the synth-pop band Yes. The Buggles’ music has been influential on subsequent electronic and synth-pop artists.
