    Default Tears for Fears 2014

    Yes, I know, we request it every year. The difference this time? They're currently working on a new album.

    Saturday night. Mojave tent. 11:30 - end. The Devo/New Order slot. Must happen.

    Yes please. There are still a few 80's new wave classics that Coachella needs to get: Pet Shop Boys, Erasure, and TFF.

    Human League, Soft Cell, and ABC are near the top of my list.

    Must be something in the air today.. I was just going through some random spotify playlists I made, saw Tears for Fears on one and of course started listening. Then the bright idea of they should be at Coachella popped in my head so I did some Googling and eventually ended up back here on the boards in a thread made today for that very topic!

    Long story short, TEARS FOR FEARS COACHELLA 2014!!! MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!!

    This revisionist definition of 'new wave classics' from people who were still in diapers when this was actually happening is fucking stupid. "New Wave Classics"? Talking Heads. Elvis Costello. Devo. The B-52s. Squeeze. The Pretenders. Ian Dury and the Blockheads. Nick Lowe. Joe Jackson. Graham Parker and the Rumour. Blondie. The Go-Gos, even, I'd even allow that. Siouxsie and the Banshees. PiL. Magazine. early Cure. the Mekons, maybe. Joy Division, certainly, and New Order. The Fall. Gang of Four.

    Then I guess you can throw in the lesser power pop bands: The Romantics, the Records, the Vapors, etc etc. And the second wave ska revivalists: The Beat, The Specials, etc etc. I'll include all them in my new wave big tent. Arty postpunk like Pere Ubu, yes.

    We can even allow the first part of the New Romantic movement. Duran Duran, as much as they suck, they were certainly new wave. Ultravox, Visage, Gary Numan/Tubeway Army. Maybe Soft Cell. maybe.

    For the record, I unapologetically adore this stuff, for whatever you want to call it.

    The later '80s Stephen Hague stuff was never as much my thing.

    Oddly, the one exception for me is Depeche Mode. I've never been big on their early '80s stuff, but adore Black Celebration on.

    that's a good article, at least the graphics clued me in: the line is at Culture Club. that is where New Wave ended and whatever you want to call it followed. Not necessarily strictly chronologically but more stylistically. OMD's first two albums were new wave; after that, when they started to suck (but got very popular) they'd crossed into Erasure territory.

    The article places the critical point at Frankie, but it just as easily could be Culture Club's American saturation on radio and MTV.

    my first love was New Wave... it was what i was subjected to in my car seat, and itll always hold a special place in my heart. That said... The Hurting is one of the best albums of that generation, quite possibly any generation.

    Coachella 07 (the introduction), 08 (the bands), 09 (the documentary), 10 (the people i came with), 11 (the relationship test... we passed), 12 (whatever the weather, Dirty Epic forever), 13 (the year of the troll)

    I've worked for them twice once being a showcall. They sound great live and know how to keep an audience entertained. They're definitely worth seeing live. They can't be that difficult to book when they're playing casinos every other year.

    "Sowing the Seeds of Love" is itself acceptable. So is "Tears Roll Down," which is like the second best track from this era, but was oddly relegated to b-side status.

    Yeah, "Woman in Chains" would be a buzzkill.

    i saw TFF around the mid 00's and they were much better than i expected, so i have no problem with this.

    on the subject of soft cell, i also saw marc almond live around the same time. he played "tainted love" but not "sex dwarf", which was a huge disappointment. kinda like seeing ministry and not hearing them play "work for love" or "i wanted to tell her" (ok not really but damn, i love that first ministry album even if it was forced)

    Would love to see them play again. I saw them when I was 14 and it was fantastic. The only thing I didn't hear that I really wanted was Watch Me Bleed. We hung out behind the stadium in the afternoon and tried to get autographs when they got off the tour bus. Manny Elias, the drummer was kind enough to sit and hang out with us for a while. We were fully blown off by Curt and Roland though. They were huge at that time.

    Right, fair enough, the difference being Frankie Goes to Hollywood was (mostly) avoidable but Culture Club was not.
