It was about the music and the alienation of being in my teens’ on long Island in the mid-late 70’s and 80’s. New wave music came to represent all of the aspects and trappings of the burgeoning Long Island counter culture and was custom made music for fans dying to hear the stuff no one else played on the radio.
