Another installment of my guilty pleasures sees a new wave classic.

The last post was a cover of Devo’s “Girl U Want” and what better way to follow that up than “In A Big Country”. This is the type of music I was raised on, the dj’s played it on WHFS 99.1 and they now mix it in the playlists on WRNR.

I believe modern alternative music is rooted in new wave and punk, and guys like Mark Mothersbaugh & Morrisey belong on a Mount Rushmore or sorts. You can say how influential Hendrix and the Beatles were, and I’ll counter with bands like The Smiths, Devo & The Clash are more applicable to today’s music as we know it.
