Stuck In Thee Garage #216: March 23, 2018

The explosion of interesting new bands that occurred in response to the bloat of '70s stadium rock and the emergence of punk resulted in a very diverse number of bands bringing new sounds to the forefront. While some of those bands are classified as post-punk, the term new wave was also used as a catch-all for some very different-sounding acts. This week on Stuck In Thee Garage, I played songs by new wave artists in hour 2. Some never transcended their look or initial sound, while some became among the biggest rock bands of all time. And some played really weird instruments.
