Upon Desolate Sands
— Muscular death, crushing riffs, and innovative compositions takes it beyond sweaty testicle metal.  

11:39-15:01
BRAINOIL (Oakland)
Blank Static Void

0:25-7:110:25-7:11
YAZ (1982)
Don't Go (12" remix)
— Allison Moyet is up there with Siouxsie in alternative queendom.  This is Vince Clark brilliance pre-Erasure.  Yazoo will be releasing 4 albums this month - both original albums, a remix album and 2 BBC sessions.  It is on my Christmas wish list. 

7:12-13:18
O.M.D. (1985)
Secret
— You may remember O.M.D. from the topnotch Pretty in Pink soundtrack, but their prime sound goes back to their singles and EPs from the early 1980's.  Crush was one of the best new wave albums of all time. 

13:19-19:42
DEPECHE MODE (1987)
StrangeLove (blind mix)
— Music for the Masses is in the running for the best new wave album of all time.  Every song was a hit. 

19:43-27:53
SIOUXSIE & THE BANSHEES (1988)
Peek-A-Boo (remix)
— Siouxsie Sioux inspired every woman in her path.  She was massive prior to this album of course, but this album became new wave mainstream and hit all the clubs. 

28:13-35:17
NEW ORDER (1985)
Sub-culture (remix)
— Holy crap, the plethora of hits available from New Order's Substance album, a compilation of their singles. 

35:18-42:59
THE CURE (1989)
Lullaby (Extended Mix)
— When Disintegration released, I had already loved the Cure for years.  But then Disintegration blew my mind and heart and soul and my love for Robert Smith and his lyrics deepened to rapture.  He is a god. 

43:00-47:14
ALPHAVILLE (1984)
A Victory of Love
— Everyone remembers the famous Forever Young song, but the entire rest of the album contains some of the best new wave songs ever made.  This is in my top 10 new wave albums, and this is one of my favorite songs. 

47:44-55:21
PINK TURNS BLUE (1988)
Your Master Is Calling
— A relatively unknown but massive band that was incredibly vital to the new wave scene.  Buy every album right now. 

55:22-59:15
SISTERS OF MERCY (1987)
This Corrosion
— Patricia's hair and Andrew's deep baritone, and when that beat landed, holy shit.  I remember lending this cassette out and never getting it back.  Never again assholes. 

59:17-END
THE SMITHS (1984)
How Soon Is Now
— The most danced song of every new wave song ever to exist.  I mean, these lyrics were the soundtrack of our souls.
There's a club if you'd like to go
You could meet somebody who really loves you
So you go and you stand on your own
And you leave on your own
And you go home and you cry
And you want to die

Decaying Realms
— Filthy, churning, riff-heavy death from start to finish.

5:40-8:53
CLOUD RAT (Michigan)
November
— Immense female lead singer of Cloud Rat expresses our emotions so well. Sick-of-your-shit vocals give way to brief respites of alternative rock, and it is a joy. Mostly grind and hardcore, don't worry.

9:26-13:32
AUTHOR & PUNISHER (San Diego)
Nazarene

14:22-20:01
UNCLE ACID & THE DEADBEATS (UK)
I See Through You

20:34-31:00
PIAH MATER (Brazil)
Earthbound Ruins
— Loose proggy death and rock and jazz.

31:44-35:55

— Slovenian lead-ups and focus on drumming with hot hoodied dudes.
