The only thing that comes to mind when trying to explain to someone about what it's like to go to a New Wave Rebellion show is maybe going to the circus on acid. Lead singer and bassist Joshua Rawlings is a young guy that transforms himself into a demented cross between the mad hatter and Grocho Marx. The bands real strength is in their live performances. No audience can sit still when NWR is on the stage. The fever on the stage is contagious . The band refers to themselves as the kings of sex rock - but don't be fooled - the band leaves no genre unturned - rap - rock - sex - blues - jazz - its all in there.
