This is the home of What Wave magazine's web site. We've finally found the time to do some work on this baby; so if you haven't been here in awhile you'll see some major alterations. In addition to information about issues, we've included some of the pages pulled right out of your fave issues and posted for all to read. (Yep! pulled right out and plopped onto the scanner for your viewing enjoyment.) We don't have the time, energy or inclination to copy whole issues, so we've yanked out some articles that we thought would be fun to post. Surf around - that's taken on a whole new meaning since What Wave was first published. (it's not just about Dick Dale anymore!) and see what's to offer. While most of our stuff is old, like us, we'll try to stay on top of any garage/rockabilly/60's/psychedelic/guitar rock/etc. stuff we come across and post it in the Rants and Raves section.
Roll on, Dave and Rena!
*New and exciting. CHRW http://chrwradio.com has been working hard to make a historical record of all of the music that features London bands. They have established a web site chock full of MP3's - that includes almost all of the What Wave releases. Just click on the Title of the what wave release on the issue pages and you will link to the appropriate CHRW site. Thanks guys!
