Various Artists "bakuretsu! New Wave 1980"

With contents similar to the recently released "Technoroid - Japanese 80's New Wave Sampler" comes a 2-CD compilation on the same theme. Once again this is a good introduction to Japanese 80's new wave/punk, and seems to contain more essentials than "Technoroid" which adventured a bit more on the rarity side. Nomiya Maki is again in there with her first album's most powerful track, "genbaku Rock".

This looks like it has a wide focus on New Wave as a whole including it's harder rock sounds (cd2) while the other "Technoroid" CD seems to share a relationship to Technopop - in other words a subset of New Wave. Though CD1 here seems like pop including lots of Technopop.

I don't know the names of Halmens tracks that well but Maki Nomiya did some guest vocals for Halmens very early on (as did Jun Togawa) - so if the Halmen's track has female vocals it's one of them and reather easy to identify
