New Wave/New Romantic

For all the fans of New Wave and subgenres.

About New Romantic: The scene emerged from a stylish clubbing scene in London and Birmingham. Steve Strange organized parties first in a Club called Billy's and later in the Blitz Club. Boy George was in charge of the cloakroom, Spandau Ballet went clubbing there and had their first gig as a band.

Basically New Romantics is the term for British bands associated with the Blitz Club or Rum Runner in Birmingham. Another trademark of the new Romantics is that styling was as important to those young bands as music that's why the music press made some snotty remarks.
