80's alternative possible project ---- Thoughts? Interest?

Postby donkeypunch » March 4th, 2014, 2:52pm

Thinking of seeing what interest is around for maybe a springtime (if it ever comes) start up project. Would need a good key/synth role to really make it happen. Would prefer weekend jams, since my main band can never do them. This would be a side project for myself but would love to do it. Think there would be a nice following if the setlists didn't go to obscure or too poppy. Probably no Skinny Puppy or no on Toni Basil and the Romantics.

Shoot me some ideas...what you play...if you have a jam spot and such. I'll keep track of the replies or the one i will get from Seven saying something about how he likes bacon.
Keep this thread updated. If you search 80's bands...it won't be like that...everyone wearing bright clothes, dumb sunglasses, skinny ties and swatch watches (although I had about 20).


The Cure
The Smiths
Elvis Costello
B52's (first two albums)
New Order/Joy Division
Love and Rockets
Cars (early stuff)
Cult (Love album stuff)
The English Beat
The Jam
Jim Carroll
Joe Jackson
Killing Joke
MIdnight Oil
Peter Gabriel
The Furs
Split Enz
Stray CAts
Talking Heads
U2 (Boy October era)
Violent Femmes

Just some ideas to throw out.........
