Dream Weapons present: THE OLD WAVE C60

The Old Wave is really just a bunch of tunes from the early to mid-eighties, that's either been with me forever, or I’ve stumbled over in various places around the internet. If not that old, New Wave is at least middle aged by now (yet for some reason "The Middle Aged Wave" didn't feel right). But it holds up well and still sound as fresh as ever. More so than the music from the second part of the same decade. It was an uniquely vibrant period for «popular music». I’ve simply collected nineteen standout gems (at least I think so) from this era that has gone under most everyone’s radar. Yes I know, The Comsat Angels and Lene Lovich are relatively well known, but the single/EP flipsides included here aren't. Chilling and doom-laden in a sort of cold war angsty way + plenty of fun -Moahaha

1 Mystery Plane - Telephone
2 Kaffi - Moonbeams
3 Ende Shneafliet. - Midnight Train
4 Dislocation Dance - Roof is Leaking
5 The Comsat Angels - We Were
6 Sueno Sueno - Hands

8 Avocados - I Never Know
9 Mal - A Letter From Yellowland
10 Stupid Set- Relaxin

13 Tarzan 5 - Boys Game
14 David Harrow - Still Optimistic
15 Leven Signs - Our Position Vanishes
16 M.Nomiized - Nitsed
