    Um, I don't really do New Wave...Not an '80's type...and I don't like much of the '90's either...and good music in this decade is even harder to come by.

    Is it still new if it has been around for a few decades?

    IMO, of the bands Tron originally mentioned, DEVO is the best "new wave" band hands down. They were so far ahead of their time 25 years ago, that they still are today.

    I wouldn't really consider The Police "new wave" but I like some of their stuff alot.

    Gary Numan's solo stuff and his work with Tubeway Army is also pretty good.

    Flock of Seagulls on the other hand...ugh. No thanks.

    Since "new wave" is a subjective term to begin with, I would also have to add a few more to the list that I consider "new wave":

    Public Image Limited

    Gang of Four

    Joy Division

    The Talking Heads

    On an interesting side note, my band played a "new wave" tribute night at a local club about a year ago and we covered songs by PIL, the Psychedelic Furs and The Church
    Even babies know the difference.
