No wave was a short-lived avant-garde music and art scene that emerged in the late 1970s in downtown New York City. Reacting against punk rock's recycling of rock and roll clichés, no wave musicians instead experimented with noise, dissonance and atonality in addition to a variety of non-rock genres, including free jazz and funk, while often reflecting an abrasive, confrontational and nihilistic worldview

Not really No Wave. But give them credit for putting the Dickies on a compilation with some fairly mainstream acts.

Anyone know if the promo version was ever issued w/o the cover? I have a copy that is housed in a thick clear poly envelope.

The people who put this compilation together obviously had no idea what No Wave was. Most likely a bunch of middle aged record execs threw this together and slapped that name on it in the hopes that they could cash in on something they heard the kids talking about. Not a single song or performer included here was even remotely related to the No Wave genre/movement.

Maybe not, but it was a good introductory album and helped a lot of people get there, like me. I got this album as a gift from a friend and there was a lot of music I'd never heard before on it. This album led me to so much great music.

middle aged execs that chose Bring on the Nubiles... well... since trump, you could be right.

The middle aged execs who put hits album together were not even remotely aware of the No Wave genre at the time of this release. They were just punning on the "New Wave" genre title, in the hopes that they could cash in on something they heard the kids talking about. Not even the kids in 1978 had heard of "No Wave;" just NYC hipsters and rock critics.
