Here’s a bunch of New Wave videos from the late seventies through the eighties that caught my attention when I was putting together something else. Each one has something going on and I just had to point them out. I have also taken the time to sprinkle goodies throughout this thing so have fun unearthing the many gems.
Electronic – A so called “super group” that included Bernard Sumner from Joy Division and New Order, along with Neil Tennant from The Pet Shop Boys, and the legendary Johnny Marr doing a song by the original super group, Blind Faith. This one is only audio.
Generation X -Kiss Me Deadly with great shots of the band before fame them turned them into assholes.
Generation X -A grimy, glam version of Valley of The Dolls. At this point they thought they were too cool.
The Damned – I Just Can’t Be Happy Today performed with ferocity, confidence, and vigor before a Finnish crowd in 1981.
The Damned – Disco Man
Thompson Twins – A bubbly In The Name Of Love closes this 1983 Liverpool show.
FGTH -Two Tribes full length video. Listen to the voice saying follow me.
Wire Train – A Bay Area “almost was” performing their big hit which stands the test of time better than the VHS tape it was recorded on.
