'80s NEW WAVE / ELECTRONICA
IN THE EARLY '80s, Montréal's punk and new wave scene was teeming with new bands playing in bars named Studio 1, Le Cargo, Le Glace, La Pleine Lune, Le Beat, Blues, Station 10, etc. Only the very few (Men Without Hats, Rational Youth) made it big...For my part, I took part in that wild adventure in Popstress and RedShift. A recent documentary (Montréal New Wave, 2017) by Erik Cimon somewhat covers these two groups...using the material he had in hand and a certain POV! Mine is quite different, of course, and this is what I present here.
