This is really great and doesn't get the praise it deserves because it's compared to Talk Talk's discography and not the New Wave and Synthpop genre.

There's lots of fun to be had with Oingo Boingo, though they're not that heavy on synths

Dead Man's is a classic, but i prefer Good For Your Soul and Boingo myself.

Man, Boingo could have been so great if it had just kept with the dark creepy atmosphere of Insanity and Mery, not to mention that awesome bonus track, unfortunately that album never clicked with me as a whole.

Ben Orr this left his corvette trailer in my neighbors yard back in the 80s and it only got removed last year. Pretty cool. Real rock and roll memorabilia.

When I was young, the only pornography to be had was an old box of magazines my dad's buddy left behind when he left.

It seemed like there was always one pictorial in every 80s mag with a trashy new wave girl - especially in Penthouse

Those were always my favorite.

>also, that pictorial with Grace Jones....HNNNGH

The Beloved were a weird band. Right at the end of New Wave and right before Madchester started. I still don't understand why they weren't huge.

First time I heard The Beloved was on a 1980's compilation tape, that was back when Blackbox - Ride on Time was number 1 and Starlights - Numero Uno was another popular house tune at the time etc

Laurie Andersons - Big Science is a great post-punk new-wave album, very experimental and artsy.

She was married to Lou Reed when he died

Drums and bagpipes

Synthpop thread, nice.

>>55637251

If I had to choose only one album from the genre this would be it. Or Depeche Mode's 101. Or New Order's Substance. Whatever. I love Rio as well.
