Pump It Up - New Wave

Pump It Up - New Wave

Playing tracks by

Simple Minds, The Stranglers, Squeeze, Elvis Costello & The Attractions, Joe Jackson and more.

New Wave is an umbrella term used (at least in the scope of this programme) to refer to bands developing in the late 70s along with Punk scene, but whose synthetic, electronic and generally more polished production and more complex lyrics distinguished them from Punk. Given the broad definition of New Wave, there is quite a lot of variety in this show with bands like Bow Wow Wow adopting a tribal beat, the reggae influenced Police or Dexys Midnight Runners taking a more pop-y approach (but still including banjo and fiddle!).

Enjoy!
