Would Peter Gabriel's solo stuff count as New Wave?

He's not really considered an artist of this genre, though.

See this is my problem. I'm looking at my RateYourMusic lists and so many of these artists don't fit: Utopia, Pink Floyd, Peter Gabriel, U2 and so on.

I guess it could work. He's got some early songs like Modern Love, On The Air, and DIY that could easily fit.

Phanan, how do you define retro? Not everything in the late seventies and early eighties had a particular genre label but it definitely sounds retro.
