This concludes New Wave Time Warp. Our chief source for this blog has been George Gimarc’s invaluable Punk Diary, which ends at the end of 1982.

If you’ve enjoyed this blog, feel free to drop us a line (see the sidebar). And if we do something similar in the future, we’ll post again and mention it.

Thank you!
