IT'S CALLED NEW MUSIC

Pinoy NEW WAVERS would definitely be very familiar with this Philippine released NEW WAVE COMPILATION ALBUM entitled "IT'S CALLED NEW MUSIC". It was released here in Manila in the latter part of 1985 when the NEW WAVE radio war of DZBM POWER 105 and WXB102 was heating up back then. When this was available on the record bars a lot of my classmates and schoolmates were very excited to get their own personal copies, of course that includes me. HE HE HE!! Personally, I consider this as one of the greatest New Wave Compilation released locally. With the bands like THE CARE, APRIL SHOWERS, THE BIG DISH, ICICLE WORKS, I-LEVEL who would go wrong buying this VINYL RECORD for your collection. Definitely, one record that made a mark for the NEW WAVE genre here in MANILA which also made the song "ABANDON SHIP" by APRIL SHOWERS very famous among Pinoy New Wavers which was introduced by DZBM POWER105 and was also played on WXB102 and even made it through the NU107 playlist. It also includes the two bands I've watched performed concerts here in MANILA wayback 2002 and they were CHINA CRISIS and LOTUS EATERS. The LIVE VERSION of "AFRICAN AND WHITE" performed by CHINA CRISIS at READING UNIVERSITY also made an impact on the airwaves. "Big New Beginning" by THE BIG DISH is one of my favorites. The song "The Country Of The Blind" by Faith Brothers also made it big on both DZBM POWER105 and NU107.

I love this album. I used to have a cassette tape of this but I lost it. I would be happy if you share this album in mp3.

THANKS

Sorry Nolit! I don't have any mp3 rip of my VINYL.

I was able to gather all songs in this compilation also. The only song missing is Big Dish' "Big New Beginnings". If you have a copy I would be glad to hear it. I will be posting this on my multiply with your credits for helling me on the track list and covers. THANKS.

Oh man this album really brings back memories only i had it on cassette.I think it's still with me. May be a tad scruffy on the audio by now but twas one of my most heavily played and thus, was worth it.

Oi, wavers and connoisseurs of excellent taste in music! (You know who you are and don't lie about your age hehe)...

I have been putting off posting for assistance with regard to a certain item that I have been hunting for eversince my car was burglarized two Christmases ago. This is one of my shot in the dark, final resort thang and hope that someone out there responds positively. So, here goes: Anyone out there still holding a well-preserved copy of the JINGLE MAGAZINE, ALL NEW WAVE EDITION with DURAN DURAN on the cover which included almost all the important songs and chords of the genre? My copy was stolen amongst the other mundane items from my car (gad knows what those miscreants will have anything to do about The Chameleons or I Fought the Law or who Gordon Matthew Thomas Sumner really was, %@#$!ing idiots!) and have been looking for a copy eversince.

If you do (and i still haven't worked out how to do it) but can I photocopy the whole mag? I know...i know, it may sound silly but i'm desperate...and those are the only ones i can play on the guitar ;) and have been very familiarized with the well-documented compendium...and you know i'm a sucker for nostalgia.

If you know anyone who might be of the New Wave breed, kindly pass this message? Thank you, peeps!
