Playlist: Sirius XM’s ‘Dark Wave,’ 9/5/10

1st Wave

Another Sunday night, another episode of “Dark Wave” on Sirius XM’s alt-’80s station 1st Wave. Tonight’s installment featured some unusual selections from big names like The Cure (“Just One Kiss,” the B-side of “The Walk”) and Depeche Mode (Black Celebration album cut “Here is the House”), plus the return of “No Name, No Slogan,” the 1989 single from Acid Horse, a hybrid of Ministry and Cabaret Voltaire.

“Dark Wave” airs each Sunday from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. Eastern/7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Pacific.

  1. I love The Smiths but I am not sure they are considered a Darkwave band. Only 2 songs from the Smiths, Siouxsie, Bauhaus, Depeche Mode, the Cure and the Sisters this week. How about some Einsturzende Neubauten, Cabaret Voltaire, Section 25, Skinny Puppy, Frontline Assembly, The Chameleons, Anne Clark, The Cassandra Complex, Fields of the Nephilim, Chris and Cosey which even fall under the definition of Darkwave according to Wikipedia.

  2. stephen, you need to post that to 1stwave. it’s always going to be like this until some major thought changes take place around that studio. bottom line is that they will play what they think sells airtime. so far, i guess their current line-up is working out for them…
