NewWave music was initially rock music, with a punk attitude, mixed with other genres such as Funk, Disco, Reggae and Ska.
During this period of interchangebility, the "newwave" was seen by many as a third distinct movement in rock music, the Rock and Roll of the 1950s being the "first wave', the British Invasion of the 1960s being the "second wave".
NewWave revivalists are currently very popular in New York, Boston and LA (centering around nightclubs like New York's Misshapes, Boston's Manray nightclub and featured in art and fashion magazines like Visionaire).
During the late 1950s and early 1960s young film-makers in many countries were creating their own "newwaves", for example the working-class cinema of the "angry young men" in Britain, but the newwave movement in France turned out to be the most influential.
The core group of French NewWave directors initially collaborated and assisted each other, which helped in the development of a common and distinct use of form, style and narrative, which was to make their work instantly recognizable.
The French NewWave directors took advantage of the new technology that was available to them in the late 1950s, which enabled them to work on location rather than in the studio.
