give me some good new wave, like blondie and devo and stuff. yeah.
Psychedelic Furs - the greatest hits collection or the one that looks Andy Warholish.
Simpleminds. Before Don't You Forget About Me dogshit, they were great.
Gang of Four/Shriekback. I dunno, Entertainment I guess.
New Order's first few records were great.
I'm trying to think back to when I was a teenager and MTV was playing all those British new-ro, new wave bands.... XTC, Elvis Costello, Talking Heads .....
tom tom club
Patti Smith (is she or is that just punk?)
more modern The Rapture are pure new wave
to mean post punk then yeah they are
post punk isn't the new wave i'm thinking of. SYNTHY is what i'm after.
Is a great New Wave album, with "She's so modern" and "Rat trap" outstanding singles.
Pick up a cheap Generation X greatest hits album for "Ready steady go", the wonderful "King rocker" and "Dancing with myself" (if its included).
"The correct use of soap" by Magazine is also an essential purchase.
"Ha ha ha" and "Systems of romance" from the pre Midge Ure Ultravox are both brilliant collections too.
are also an essential purchase, especially "Wild planet"
Can't go wrong with their first three albums (Pink Flag, Chairs Missing and 154), though they get weirder as they go on.
gary numan/tubeway army
the human league
pet shop boys
tears for fears
that's all i can think of right now.....
