intrestingly i found a fusion style called electroclash (elektroklash) that takes on New Wave and electrifies it. Term was coined by Larry Tee, but the movement is widely said to be headed by a 'DJ Hell from Gigolo Records.' Pioneering 1982 film Liquid Sky also associated with the genre, for aesthetic contribution.
bands that fall under the genre:
chicks on speed
miss kittin and the hacker
felix da housecat
robots in disguise
i often wonder how they come up with these names.
