Neue Deutsche Welle

At some point I decided it was a good idea to explore German New Wave or Neue Deutsche Welle. I always thought of West Germany as the quintessential eighties nation. I'm not really sure how to explain that statement, but I'll stand by it.

I knew of Falco. Alphaville. Nena. Klaus Nomi. I was fairly confident there were additional artists out there. With a little digging I discovered an entire world of NDW. Some (or a few) more accessible than others. Some (fewer still) cheaper than others.

Ideal was one of the first "new" bands I came across. I was not disappointed. You won't be either.
