The Musical Mystery Tour — New Wave


As the decade of the 70’s closed and the dying embers of dis­co start­ed to fade, the pro­gres­sive move­ment start­ed to spawn a new wave of bands who took a dif­fer­ent approach to music.

Most of these bands end­ed up being man­aged by them­selves, some­thing which The Bea­t­les had done at the lat­ter end of their tenure.  These bands mixed the elec­tron­ic sounds which became preva­lent at the end of the 70’s and merged with with oth­er styles and gen­res of sound like pro­gres­sive pop, pro­gres­sive pop and pure elec­ton­i­ca.

They became termed as the “New Wave” of pop.  On both sides of the Atlantic  on both the UK and US charts these bands would ulti­mate­ly shape the entire decade of the 80’s, and that’s there the tour vis­its today, the decade which shaped music going into the 90’s and ulti­mate­ly into the new cen­tu­ry.

Togeth­er with the broad­cast, res­i­dents with­in Sec­ond Life can lis­ten in live as well by going to Radio Riel’s “Claren­don” in the City State of New Bab­bage.
