1 Year Anniversary

anniversaryLost Bands of the New Wave Era is one year old and I have found the past year very rewarding. Readers have introduced me to great artists I had never heard before and I know that I have returned the favor. I've conversed with artists whose music has meant a lot to me. I've made new friends and got back in touch with old ones. The first band I posted was New Jersey's The Modulators and as a result of that post I was invited to a block party at one of the band member's houses where the band gets together every year and plays. It was great hearing the band and their songs took me back to all those nights they played at The Dirt Club in Bloomfield, NJ. To mark my one year anniversary here's the title song off the Modualtors nine song E.P. "Tomorrow's Coming" (1984, Vintage Vinyl). It's an ironic title since for many of the bands I posted this past year, tomorrow never came.

Go to the download page to get the Modulators - "Tomorrow's Coming"

Happy Anniversary to you! I thought this would be a great opportunity to let you know that one of the bands you and I mutually love, Polyrock, now have a MySpace page. I hope it gets more people to check them out -- http://myspace.com/polyrock is the address. Keep the faith.

Happy Anniversary. LBOTNWE was one of the first to link me up, for which I'm grateful. Always an interesting read, one year in

Woo and a yay and a happy anniversary!

Thank you for making my walkman much cooler and my list of 'wanted' 2nd hand records much longer and far more difficult to find.

Love as always
