LOST IN THE NOISE

September 9 — I EAT CANNIBALS, Total Coelo (1982)

imagePaste Magazine this week issued its 50 Best New Wave Albums. While it’s hard to argue with the top picks — Elvis Costello, Blondie, Talking Heads, et al — it can be a dicey game, as most of these artists transcend the genre, blazing the trail for post-punk and college rock. Plus, in my mind, New Wave was largely a singles- and video-dominated period, ruled by one-hit wonders like Wall of Voodoo, Kakagoogoo and one of my favorites, Total Coelo.
