It's a New Wave Wednesday in The Dungeon and this week I've got another episode of the 1982 TV show "New Wave Theatre" for you to ponder.
Just in case you're not familiar with the masterful music of Peter Ivers, here's a song called "Eighteen And Dreaming" from this 1985 LP called "Nirvana Peter."
After Peter does his opening spiel, we're introduced to the first L.A. band on the program, The Stepmothers. The band was fronted by this guy named Steve Jones, who went on to be in the band The Unforgiven.
Next up was a power punk band I liked quite a lot called The Generals.
The Generals dressed up in military garb, and here they perform a very cool song called "Officer Material." Since they were "rejecting art in favor of fundamentalism," it's not surprising that I couldn't find any records by them, or really any information at all.
The song performed by X was from this 1980 LP, and was titled "The World's A Mess, It's In My Kiss."
Andy And The Rattlesnakes were fronted by Andy Krikun, and are still rockin' today! Here's their website if you'd like to find out more about them!
The song performed by Andy And The Rattlesnakes was called "Patience," and can be found on this retrospective CD from 2006.
Better late than never!!
