While this week’s installment of ‘Dark Wave’ on Sirius XM featured a host of all-too-usual suspects (The Cure’s ‘Other Voices,’ Public Image Ltd.’s ‘Rise,’ The Sisters of Mercy’s ‘Lucretia, My Reflection’), there were, as always, some pleasant surprises, including ‘Bird Mad Girl’ from the aforementioned Cure, a dash of the always-welcome Chameleons and even a Chris Connelly track.
This week’s installment of ‘Dark Wave’ on Sirius XM’s 1st Wave featured the usual staples (The Cure, The Sisters of Mercy, Siouxise and the Banshees), plus a few nice surprises, such as Peter Murphy’s ‘Marlene Dietrich’s Favourite Poem’ and Tubeway Army’s ‘Are Friends Electric?’
To show our support for 1st Wave’s Sunday night ‘Dark Wave’ show — and the idea that Sirius XM should dig deeper all the time, not just once a week — tonight we begin posting each week’s playlist.
