we air a Part 2 to our Women of New Wave and Punk special, featuring tracks from Kate Bush, Aneka, Souxsie and the Banshees, The Heaters, Voice of the Beehive, Fuzzbox, Toni Basil, Nina Hagen and more
Maggie Connell of The Heaters is our guest. The Heaters were one of the LA New Wave scene’s hottest live acts of the late 70s. Led by Maggie Connell, Missy Connell and Mercy Bermudez, the band forged their own sound amid the ascension of the new genre in southern California: a mix of 60s soul, the early girl groups and punk. The Heaters will release the tracks they recorded in 1983 in a few different locations (not in big studios) in a compilation titled: American Dreams: the Portastudio Recordings.
