With New Wave and Dark Wave music from the 80s, Blasphemous Rumors leads you into the fringes of music from the decade of Reagan, the fall of the Berlin Wall, Yuppies, and MTV!
New Wave was popular in the late 1970s and the 1980s with ties to mid-1970s punk rock. It moved away from blues and rock and roll sounds to create rock music (early new wave) or pop music (later) that incorporated disco, mod, and electronic music.
Dark Wave was a music genre that emerged from the new wave and post-punk movement of the late 1970s. Its compositions are largely based on minor key tonality and introspective lyrics, and have been perceived as being dark, romantic, and bleak, with an undertone of sorrow.
Join your host DJ Cypher for a look back at the fringes of a decade that saw turmoil and triumph, bitterness and bliss, victory and defeat, but above all, amazing music!
