The Chase

The Chase

The Chase is a mix that has been fermenting for the last few weeks. It’s the soundtrack to a strange and terrible time and consists of a dozen 12″ mixes. All date from the 1983-1987 era with the emphasis firmly towards the new wave sound. I remember hearing many of them on Gerry Ryan’s show on Radio back in the day; Willy Finlayson’s On The Air Tonight is particularly evocative of a time when the threat of nuclear war was real and songs were best enjoyed on a radio under the blankets. The above photo is by Matt Weber and was taken in Brooklyn during 1985.
