I've been listening to Spotify radio and it's been giving me lots of new wave stuff. A few minutes ago, it played "Chains of Luck" by Wall of Voodoo. Now, there's something! I first heard of them through a parody of their song "Mexican Radio", a Ranma songfic Training Ground Jusenkyo. All kinds of things come together, with broad enough experience.
I listened to "Mexican Radio" again, and I liked it better than I remember liking it, last time I heard it. Maybe it's from more exposure to new wave? Or maybe I was just in a bad mood before. Who knows.
