Exposed IIThe disco/funk era got fully transmogrified by the purveyors of “New Wave” in the 1980s.  New and often disturbing elements of dissonance and anxiety replaced the drug-fueled positivity of the previous decade.  Hear some of the greatest and oddest dance sounds from 30 years back, including BUSH TETRAS, PYLON, B-52s, TRIO, KLAUS NOMI, NINA HAGEN, AU PAIRS, NENA and plenty of others on yet another danceable episode.  Funk up your post-punk, fellow music geeks!

European TheaterBack in the 1980s nuclear war and nuclear energy were major topics of discussion and activism.  Even yours truly, The Rock’N’Roll Nurse, got arrested for protesting at a nuclear weapons plant!  These issues may seem like long past images in the rear view mirror, but they haven’t really disappeared.  In an effort to re-energize your thinking about nukes, Geek (Ema)Nation presents this compilation from 1982 in its entirety, featuring choice cuts by The CLASH, The JAM, The UNDERTONES, The AU PAIRS and other exciting bands of the time.  No proliferation here, fellow music geeks!
