This is kinda misleading but the New Wave term is much given weight in the Philippines than it is in European countries where most new wave bands came.

I started this thread hoping a lot here listen to this kind of genre and maybe i might ind some materials ive been looking for. Maybe you have old cd's to sell. ;D

So who listens to the following?

Echo And The Bunnymen
The Cure
The Railway Children
The Lotus Eaters
Psychedelic Furs
China Crisis
Wild Swans (my favorite band)
New Order
Depeche Mode
The Chameleons

........to name a few

mine would be:

1. blue nile--this group fronted by paul buchanan (a musical god in scotland) issues an album every seven years, and each one is outstanding. nevertheless, it's their album "hats" that really seals the deal for me. one of the most underrated recordings not only of the 80s but of all time. by the way, they enjoyed a revival of sorts after their classic "let's go out tonight," a morose, brooding song about hopelessness, was featured in the six feet under soundtrack. terminally hip.

2. china crisis--my favorites are their album "working with fire and steel" and "flaunt the imperfection." the song "you did cut me" just kills me everytime i hear it, which is, sad to say, not very often because i had it on vinyl.

3. lotus eaters--the song "first picture of you" represents the song of summer of '84, when i was an incoming high school senior. it still reverberates with meaning everytime i hear it on the radio.

Very cool bands you mentioned. I have recorded on radio before Ble Nile's Second Act and of course, the classic Stay.

Ah yes, China Crisis. I love their No More Blue Horizons. I had their Collection but its missing my two fave songs from them. Highest High and Some People.

Lotus Eaters who held a concert here a few years back are NW classics. I love their German Girl andCan You Keep A Secret. BTW, their Bassist Kelly joined Wild Swans after they broken up.

Charlatans UK I dig!



Some of these UK Bands that flourished during the time of the Iron Butterfly were not just artists but* also activists. During that decade, Tatcherism was wreaking havoc to the old social democratic landscape of Britain. Some of these bands could not help but add social commentaries to their songs given the situation.

Thus we find bands taking the left-wing position. Some of more popular and vocal leftwing acts include The Clash, Style Council, and The Housemartins.

Unlike the anarchism/nihilism of the Sex Pistols, these bands are rooted in the traditional* European left.

While the Brits were doing it in UK, The Alarm was championing the cause of working class America.

The Aussies on the other hand had Midnight Oil taking the stand for the Aborigines.

Thanks salsa. Yeah, it's Simple Mind. Heard it on the radio last night and I had difficulty recalling the band.

Ironically, that song made them famous in the US, a market which they failed to penetrate for several years. Maybe the lead singer did not like it because it was written by someone else and was offered first to Billy Idol. Simple Mind was just the 2nd or 3rd choice.

Damn that band Oranges And Lemons for disrespecting Care's Chandelier and using its intro in that soundtrack of Pinoy Big Brother.

Love Will Tear Us Apart is probably NewWave's anthem.

Yes Galore is a compilation album. I just hate their version of Pictures Of You. It was shortened compared to its original version in Disintegration.

Incidentally, Arnel was supposedto be my bro's house guest in the states. Unfortunately, Journey had to hit the road immediately after their concert in Houston. He gave him and his tropa back stage passes instead.

Which local 1980's era band sang "Imagining October"? I recall that song came out about the same time that "Enveloped Ideas" of The Dawn came out, sometime 1985 or thereabouts. They normally played these two songs almost every hour on the hour on DWXB because of that stupid regulation about local radio stations having to play at least one OPM song every hour.

My favorite song from The Smiths is Girl Afraid and William, It Was Really Nothing.

From New Order - Leave Me Alone, Perfect Kiss, Love Vigilantes, and Subculture > versions from the Low Life Album

Also, extended version of The Killing Moon from Echo and the Bunnymen.

Who among you here have a collection of the live version of the old Depeche Mode songs specially from the Speak and Spell album?

Dark Knight
09-20-2008, 09:05 PM
I got on DVD Depeche Mode 101 and Devotion Tour.

EATB broke up when Ian McCulloch pursued a solo career spawning great songs such as Proud To Fall and Candleland.

Then formed his own band Electrifiction.

The remaining band members hired a new crooner but also never last.

Probably the greatest NO album Substance.

Bernard Sumner once formed Electronic with Smiths Johnny Marr and had a hit song Getting Away With It featuring Neil Tenent of the Pet Shop Boys on vocals.

Drummer Stephen Morris and Keyboardist Gillian Gilbert eventually got married and formed The Other Two with song Selfish.

Pag natuloy ang party na ito, lahat ng wavers kaliangan nakasuot ng Shambhu shirt! I still have my first Shambhu shirt (U2) tucked away somewhere in my room in my parents' house.

My favorites: New Order, The Care, Bolshoi, The Smiths.

MP3 at CD ba kamo? Meron pa akong mga New Wave na plaka! May price tag pa yung iba: P50 for an LP purchased at the original Odyssey branch at Greenhills. ;D

Question: do you guys consider Depeche Mode to be New Wave? I always liked their songs Everything Counts, Shake the Disease and Get the Balance Right.

Dark Knight
09-21-2008, 11:50 PM
Ah yes, Shambu shirts. Rivaled by Top 40 T-Shirts. I also got one pero nawala na, how about Arte Linea shirts at Cartimar Recto? New Wave ang designs. Do you remember the 3 new wave boutiques at SM North. Eclipze who also sell LP's. High Adventure famous for their bags and Khumb Mela Boutique who sell framed NW posters.

Regarding DM, bands mature as these people are not getting younger anymore. While their early works are the real NW sound to me, their later works still has that NW sounding melodies we all crave for.

Unlike U2 who i stopped listening to after The Joshua Tree and REM after the album Green. These bands jumped the mainstream bandwagon and i let go of them.

pio_valenz
09-22-2008, 03:48 PM
^I never really considered U2 to be New Wave. I've always felt they were a rock group. They were just sort of lumped together with the other British New Wave bands that were emerging in the early '80s. But if you listen to their early work, they never had that so 80s synthesizer sound that became the trademark of New Wave. Traditional setup sila with one guitarist (Edge) and one bassist (Adam Clayton). Kung meron man silang keyboards, back-up musician lang.

09-23-2008, 12:57 AM
Stopped listening to Depeche Mode since they launched their Songs of Faith and Devotion Album. One can already sense the shift to Rock and the obvious influence of drugs and alcohol in their songs starting with this album.

My all-time DM favorite is But Not Tonight from the Black Celebration Album - which incidentally the locally released album did not include in its line-up but it was present in its US and European versions.

Vince Clark of Erasure used to be one of the original members and main composer of the Band until he left them after the Speak and Spell Album. Martin Gore took over the writing chores from thereon.

Now, only 3 of them remain: David Gahan, Martin Gore, and Andrew Fletcher. Alan Wilder left the group some years back right after the Songs of Faith and Devotion Album as he was disgusted by the other group members' addiction to drugs and alcohol.

^I never really considered U2 to be New Wave. I've always felt they were a rock group. They were just sort of lumped together with the other British New Wave bands that were emerging in the early '80s. But if you listen to their early work, they never had that so 80s synthesizer sound that became the trademark of New Wave. Traditional setup sila with one guitarist (Edge) and one bassist (Adam Clayton). Kung meron man silang keyboards, back-up musician lang.


U2 is a rock group embraced by New Wavers. Other rock groups that became part of the "new wave" play list include The Alaram, The Cult, The Call and REM among others.

Ok. Here's the question that was popular then, "What does it mean to be New Wave?". The Dawn actually said that they are not New Wave. They are New Rock. :)

Tears For Fears is a classic. Orzabal, Smith, Ian Curtis and Manny Elias are one hell of a group. Agree with you all about The Hurting. Suffer The Children is my fave. Songs From The Big Chair is a good commercialized album. It went to no. 1 in the US album chart. After that, they went to a hiatus and re emerged with Seeds Of Love, a rather bland offering but contains Woman In Chains, a very good song.

Trivia - Mothers Talk has two video versions.

The Dawn a New Rock? They are denying they are new wave and yet they are covering NW songs during their heydey.

New Wave is subjective. The term isnt popular in Europe. New Wave in europe is associated in the arts. When i joined the nwoutpost.com, i learned a lot especially what is and what is not New Wave in other countries.

To them New Wave has many sub genres.

Power Pop - Bands like The Wild Swans, Railway Children

Synth Pop - DM, Book Of Love, New Order

Madchester - from Manchester, The Soup Dragons

Gothic - The Swans, Peter Murphy, X-mal Deutschland.

Basically in the Philippines, New Wave is the music genre that started in the late 70's up to early 90's that is European in origin, not mainstream, (as only a few has knowledge about the bands mentioned) with great melodic pop and accented with the use of synthesizers and unique voices.

NewWave is more of an attitude, just like HipHop. We wear make ups, wore creepers, never brush our hair ala Robert Smith. But sadly there are a lot of misconceptions and wrong notion about New Wave.

I saw a lot of NW compilation taht includes KC And The Sunshine Band, Men At Work and even Wham. These stupid people thought that if you are a band in the eighties then automatically you are new wave.

Thinking Of You is probably the most popular song by Colourfield. Terry Hall formed this band after Fun Boy Three who sang Our Lips AreSealed then went solo. Other great songs by them are Castles In The Air, Windmills Of Your Mind and Pushing Up Daisies. They had a song from the album Deception with Orzabal as the guest guitarist. The song is Running Away.

I have the Chameleons Best Of album, and if you love Tears, then you should check out Swamp Thing. After The Chameleons disbanded, Burgess formed The Sun And The Moon.

Great discussion! Hindi lang pang sports, pang New Wave pa!


Before Fun Boy Three and Colourfield, Terry Hall also fronted the definitive ska group The Specials . The group was THE backbone behind the legendary 2 Tone Records.

Some Punk rockers enjoyed Jamaican inspired music of The Specials and other ska/reggae acts. While other punks scuff at the collaboration. Thus we have The Clash doing reggae and ska as against The Sex Pistols wreaking havoc with their filth and fury.

Two recent favorite Punk groups doing ska and reggae include Sublime and Rancid! Oi! Oi! Oi!

Yup medyo na-commercialize ang Tears for Fears after the Big Chair album but they are still one of my favorite bands. Come to think of it, they are my favorite band! The best song for me in the Big Chair album is "The Working Hour." Galing ni Roland Orzabal dun! Buong buo ang boses! Good thing they reunited and got a new album out!

Sa local, for me it has to be Dean's December! Their Chemical Wedding album is really good! Binky Lampano and the rest of the guys really know how to work up a crowd! Tsaka there was no conscious effort to sound like this or that. They stuck to their guns! "Only snows in America, not in Manila..." Astig!

Most probably. just like The Smiths are only Marr and Morrissey. The other two are just on their payroll. Roddy Frame is is the only one shown in his last two albums, no other band members.

BTW, AC last album called Dreamland is in collaboration with Japanese Ryuchi Sakamoto and sounded very mature. But Black Lucia is awesome.

Sa mga luma, especially the album High land Hard Rain, my fave is If We Could Send Letters. Awesome guitars by Roddy there. He also collaborated with Mick Jones of The Clash in Good Morning Britain.

But some of us were just too stubborn to join...then we grew older and became lovers of great music in general.

I too have all the EBTG albums (I think there were one or two albums which were released only for the Japanese market. Spent an arm and a leg just to get them).* Though EBTG came to being around the same time as the New Wave movement kahit na the duo's music was hardly New Wave, for me EBTG was "pampatangal ng umay" if you had too much of New Wave music for a day.* After Ben Watt had that weird medical disorder, their music started getting darker and darker and i slowly tuned out.

OT:* speaking of Japan, di ko pa rin maarok kung bakit now-passe groups like Swing Out Sister, Workshy, EBTG etc. are so damn popular there.* There are even a lot of rare pressings that can only be found in the Japanese market.* I guess the Japanese are just as musically-inclined as Filipinos, maybe even more.

Blast from the past: today is the 24th anniversary of the recording of Do They Know It's Christmas? by the super group Band Aid.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8jEnTSQStGE

While Bob Geldof's initiative was widely hailed as groundbreaking and compassionate back in 1984, looking back a lot of lyrics of this song would have been slaughtered by critics if they had been sung today for being politically incorrect and insensitive. In fact, the whole premise of the song was a bit off since majority of Africans aren't even Christian to begin with, so they probably wouldn't care if it was Christmas or not.

Time Magazine wrote an essay about this song a few years ago and called it Do They Know It's Pretentious?

But still, for nostalgia's sake, the video is worth watching over and over again. It's cool being reminded how Bono, George Michael, and Sting looked 20-odd years ago.

pio, i agree. just imagine trying to get away with lines such as "well, tonight, thank God it's them, instead of you"... kahit murang-mura pa ang isipan ko nung unang bumulusok ang kantang yan, i thought that line, sung by bono, was quite insensitive. frankly it sounded more like a taunt from rowdy arsenal fans.

anyway, another blast from the past was the song "last christmas" by wham! (tutal pasko na, mga repapips), which subsequently appeared on the same album that featured "do they know it's christmas?" ang nakakatawa, sumikat ang kantang ito sa ating bansa in the summer (yes, summer!) of '85. i clearly remember jingle chordbook magazine turning this song into a running gag in its pages for the months of april till june that year ;D

Yup, Bono's line pretty much summed up the insensitivity and ignorance of the songwriters. Other lines that were off:

"And there won't be snow in Africa this Christmastime." - Duh. Except for very isolated elevated areas, there never was.

"Where nothing ever grows, no rain or rivers flow." - Ignorant line. Many Africans were incensed by this line because all it did was reinforce the negative stereortype most Westeners had about the continent.

On another note, you see Phil Collins on drums. But I don't think he had any lines in the recording, nor did he give any Christmas greeting in the extended remix version (the part where representatives of all the bands recorded a Christmas greeting, i.e., "Okay, well this is Bono here, the singer of U2 wishing everyone a happy Christmas and a merry New Year.")

pio and shyboy, i read somewhere that kool and the gang and jody watley were touring the UK at the time (jody was still with shalamar back then), and they happened to be in town when bob geldof rang them up, and they accepted the invite.

my get up at the time consisted of the following: longback polo shirt with the shirttail hanging out, lee jeans, and either topsiders or greenhills tretorn shoes na may tatlong punit--kasi nga tretorn, di ba? ;D

Jingle Magazine. That's another blast from the past... grin department :D


Definitely a blast from the past.* Anybody seen copies of Jingle issues just before the imposition of Makoy's PD-1081?* They were raunchy as hell!* Looking at the by-lines of the current on-line local dailies, I just realized that a couple of these writers were contributors to Jingle magazine in its various evolutions.*

Medyo OT as far as this thread is concerned but since this is a basketball forum baka papasa ito:* does anybody remember "Cageking", a local basketball-specific tabloid?* When this Forum came out with Basketbolista, it unlocked a small segment of my memory.* A couple of issues of the rag were scattered around the house when I was in prep or thereabouts, but what I remember about them were the cheesecake pics at the end of the issue (talk about a scarred childhood).* Speaking of cheesecake, does "Tik-Tik" ring a bell?* Aminiiiiiiin!!!!!!

Dark Knight
03-25-2009, 01:36 PM
Sadly, there is none.

The New wave already did its job in the 80's spawning local bands such as Runaway Boys, Nursery Rhymes, Mere Mercy, Temper Of Times, The Dawn, Ethnic Faces, Introvoys, Under Blue Skies, Deans December, Violent Playground and Identity Crisis. NU Rock the Album also compiled NW songs by local bands such as The Sequel, Happy Shrimps, Animo, TheThought and Third Light.

Rivermaya had an album which remade some new wave hits of our local bands. Hale sometimes has songs that sounded like NW.

LA 105 before features underground bands such as The End (song Pagkalumo) thats very New Wavish. Sounded like early New Order.

Orange and Lemons did come closest to an 80's sound before they disbanded. Of course, their reputation was tainted by "Pinoy Ako".

Also, a lot of bands covering 80's music tend to focus on the easy-listening, upbeat songs. I've never heard a local band cover "This Night Has Opened My Eyes", for example.

the only thing that separated gary jules's and adam lambert's version of mad world is that the latter has better pipes. as far as the approach and the new arrangement are concerned, gary jules did it first. makes you wonder why simon gave him a standing ovation.

I'm torn about Adam Lambert's version. Like, were the vocal gymnastics towards the end justified? Gary Jules' version was haunting as it is. Then again, it wouldn't be Adam Lambert if he didn't insert a few flourishes here and there.

Nice avatar dude. Incidentally, Morrissey has a new album.

You mentioned the song RUN. Does that song goes with lyrics like this?

"Run for your love (i'll be looking after you
run for your love (if you....................)"
run for your love (if i stumble ............

For me, Rock Project has got to be one of the best engineered, produced, conceptualized, etc. modern day pinoy albums. I remember first hearing "While.." in the mid to late eighties just before I moved to New York for an overseas posting. Unang-unang parinig pa lang nalula na ako. Wow, this is good stuff! When I got to the Big Apple, I went to the usual record/Cd outlets looking for their album and the folks there just gave me this "pre, bangag ka na naman look - no such thing". Only when I got home during the mid-nineties did I find out that RP Band was a local group. Nakakahiya man, I was proud when I discovered that. Check out Philmusic.com. There's a thread there about this group. I wish their two albums would be re-issued sometime in the future.

yung kumanta ng "bulong" ay dr. fuzz, formerly known as dr. faust. hard rock sila nung dr. faust pa sila, but upon discovering another LA 105 band called faust, they changed their band name and went new wave as dr. fuzz...

They sell the CD's on their 1 night reunion concert last sep 9 at the NBC Tent. The CD is 250 and is not available anywhere. You have to pick it up or order online.

I bought the cassette version back when i was still in HS and the sound already deteriorated.

Every new wave fanatic should have this. A great addition to my collection!
