    Dutch New Wave

    Here are some dutch New Wave songs that you might like to hear:

    Most people know the band Ten Sharp from their international hit You. This is an older song from 1983 caled Japanese Lovesong. This is my fave song.

    Next one is Timebandits - Only A Fool. This band had a hit in Europe with Listen To The Man With The Golden Voice. This song was a huge hit in NL, like all Timebandit songs became major hits.

    Last one is The Nits - Nescio and Sketches Of Spain. This dutch band is still together and touring. These 2 songs were major hits in NL, Belgium and Gemany. At the moment the band is more popular in Germany than here in NL.

    The dutch didn't do bad in europe. Some artist did even better outside our country than here. The Limit never had a charthit here and Gerard Joling had only 2 major hits. He was far more popular in asia.

    Are we talking Dutch NEW WAVE?

    We did have quite a lot of new wave bands with original material, back in the '80s. More Dutch New Wave bands that frequented the Dutch venues were:

    The Dutch
    Carlene
    The (Nighttime) Visitor
    Hook Of Holland
    Weekend At Waikiki
    Bicycle Repairmen
    Social Security
    Twinkling Tears
    The Mo
    Mark Foggo & the Secret Meeting

    More... anyone?

    Re: Dutch New Wave

    Lot of the above are absolutely not New Wave (Gerard Joling? Diesel?)...
    Here are some more movers & shakers in the Netherlands New Wave scene of the 80's:
    Hi-Jinx
    Judy Nylon
    Secret Sounds
    Nasmak (+ Instruments)
    De Div
    Minny Pops
    Clan of Xymox
    Sammy America's MAM
    The Meteors
    The Tapes
    Ce Soir
    For lack of major label interest most of them released their music themselves on tapes & vinyl at first.
    Later on there were specialized labels like Plurex, Torso and Tophole.
    Some even had releases on UK labels like Factory/FBN and 4AD.
    By 1988 the scene more or less faded and guitar/garage bands like Claw Boys Claw & Fatal Flowers took over.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Last year Secret Sounds have been busy releasing their remastered back catalogue
    on the 'Secret Sounds - Complete Remasters' online and as a limited 11CD Box.
    Find their albums on Bandcamp: https://secretsounds1.bandcamp.com/
    www.secretsounds.eu has all the links (also for iTunes and Spotify)
    some more:
    Social Security: https://socialsecurity.bandcamp.com/
    The Dutch: https://itunes.apple.com/nl/artist/t...d72807469?l=en
    This Universal 4 CD compilation: '50 Jaar Nederpop - Rare & Obscure' covers a lot of the alternative side of the Dutch Popscene
    http://www.discogs.com/Various-50-Ja...elease/4806931
    It's out of print but you can hunt it down on sites like Discogs and ebay.
    The 4th CD concentrates on a lot of Dutch New Wave music.
