Sirius XM's 1st Wave

It’s once again time to check in with the playlist from “Dark Wave” on Sirius XM’s 1st Wave. And once again, the show is maddeningly bipolar, managing to be both completely repetitive — opening with Public Image Ltd.’s “Rise” for the third week in a row, playing The Sisters of Mercy’s “Lucretia, My Reflection,” The Mission UK’s “Wasteland” and Siouxise and the Banshees’ “Slowdive” seemingly every week — and yet still dig so much deeper than anything else on 1st Wave. Tonight’s highlights: The Swans’ cover of “Love Will Tear Us Apart,” a dash of German synthpop from Cetu Javu, The March Violets’ classic “Snake Dance” and a nice Bauhaus/David J/Love and Rockets run toward the end of the show.
