are we confused here? new wave= skinny ties, 1979, kinda faggy side of punk, nu wave= record label?

it's great isn't it. i used to have it on original 7" [Image: mohawk.gif]

but you only want to check the early stuff. i have a vic godard singles anthology and it moves into lounge pretty quickly.

these compilations (which i don't have) look worth getting though...

[url=]Twenty Odd Years[/url]
or the 1977-81 retrospective on rough trade

if you can find either of them Neutral

may i add talking heads - more songs about buildings and food to the list? really good record and quite different to later (1980s) talking heads. the first talking heads album (77) is also really good.
