This week's New Wave fave comes to us from 1982 when oil prices and tension in the Middle East were sky high. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

"Rock the Casbah" from The Clash pokes fun at the political friction between Arabs and Jews by having them party down at a Clash concert. Maybe they were on to something.
