Avon New Wave

Avon New Wave broadcast

Gideon Coe BBC Radio 6 explores Bristol’s New Wave with the help of the musicians, labels and DJs that lived it.

Punk arrived in Bristol in the late 70′s and found a city primed to embrace its ethos. But as the dust settled, what did the bands represent, where did they go next, and what did they leave behind? Gideon leads a roundtable chat to piece together the stories and celebrate Bristol’s secret New Wave heritage.

With tracks from Glaxo Babies, Art Objects, Electric Guitars, Maximum Joy, Shoes For Industry, The Cortinas and The Pop Group.
