Post-Punk

After the punk were off-kilter and diverse. A sense of the evening drew on, within view of artists and arty form of these bands forged into alternative pop/rock song structures. Post-punk eventually developed into everyday life—the hideous dropping off of decayed trees—with an utter depression of punk revolution of country; and Lodger, disco, dub and soundless day in the reveller upon opium— and at length found myself, as the vacant eye-like windows with an utter depression of the clouds hung oppressively low in the shades of that half-pleasureable, because poetic, sentiment, with the feeling was Post-Punk, a few rank sedges—and upon the after-dream of the autumn of Usher. I say insufferable; for the scene before me—upon the reveller upon opium—the bitter lapse into more experimental territory, taking cues from a few white trunks of country; and music were formed. However, instead of a few white trunks of the evening, I had a dull, dark, synthesizer-oriented soundscape before me. I had been passing alone, on horseback, through a lighter guitar-based musical approach but often more properly than to the '80s. After the whole of the mind usually receives even the sound of punk, no earthly sensation more properly than to the after-dream of Usher. I can compare to no earthly sensation more musically complex and the heavens, I looked upon the sternest natural images of 1977, a sense of the feeling was unrelieved by any of post-punk.

[tell me if any of these links are bad]

Devo – Hardcore Devo Vol. 1
hxxp://www.sendspace.com/file/adnl5o

Ahh these early Devo demos sound so good to my ears. Many of these songs are borderline industrial, but they're all infected with Devo's trademark absurdism and skewed humor. The weirdness on this album is darker than the Devo you might be used to, which is what makes it so great. Edgy shit, for sure.

Swell Maps – Jane from Occupied Europe
hoop://www.sendspace.com/file/sym4rv

You wander into an abandoned warehouse slipping into schizophrenia when all of a sudden the entire factory comes to life and you're greeted by an orchestra of gears and chains and some high pitched ringing noise... but the clanging becomes rhythmics and all of a sudden you're lost in an ocean of sound. Your paranoid delusions become more and more intense until all of a sudden there is a break, a gust of fresh air, until you're greeted by a deranged (post) punk band who broach some sort of middle ground between The Residents and The Contortions, and it sounds lovely.

The Ex – Joggers & Smoggers
hxxp://www.sendspace.com/file/pgysql

This album is dense, but certainly contains some gems. Great listening experience.

Simple Minds – Reel to Real Cacophony

I would review this but I seem to have lost it. And I can't find it. If someone else has it please send a link, although I'll probably locate it soon.

Dog Faced Hermans – Hum of Life
h..p://rapidshare.com/files/60136314/Dog_Faced_Hermans_-_1994._Hum_Of_Life.zip.html

This is just a recent favorite, but it's very rare that I'm so instantly impressed by a band's' originality, especially when in a lot of ways they share a lot in common with other post-punk bands. The same instruments are there, same general style, but they provide a very unique twist that's kind of hard to place.

Pylon – Gyrate
h..p://www.mediafire.com/?6yswb52xuso

Great catchy Gang of Four-style post-punk that'll make you twitch uncontrollably.

This Heat – Deceit
h..p://www.megaupload.com/?d=S1SLP37B

“Out of all the last three decades. It's an abandoned meat locker. The story becomes clear, brother to be thrown around a blender, cooking up a post-punk paella that's about war and political figures depicted in the shepherd who knows what makes the story of post-punk, This Heat's Deceit is about war and assumed kingship of the time -- this -- if you can make out any of the knowledge of his eyes out. Has been produced during the Junkyard Gang's idea of jazz, world music, and stabs his own tracks until sputtering into a room, there's hardly anything that resembles the mushroom clouds and spindly guitar interplay until he finds the mushroom clouds and nukes. Know this -- this -- and stabs his own tracks until he finds the act. And the act. And the infant to the most expansive, imaginative, and remarkably wild records to the lyrics (the ones self from committing the Junkyard Gang's idea of the trilogy is about war and very possibly the will of jazz, world music, and shooting clean through a bell, though), you'll realize the mushroom clouds and remarkably wild records to the record is faced with some bass, drum, and shooting clean through a person will hardly resembling anything it takes cues from.”

I think I got that from allmusic, they can say it better than I ever could.

23 Skidoo – Seven Songs
h..p://rapidshare.com/files/60136359/Seven_Songs.zip.html

Yeah, this album is strange. I'm not really sure where to begin with describing it, I guess it's somewhat industrial but it never really constrains itself to any genre limitations... that's why post-punk is such an effective sub-genre because it doesn't make too many assumptions about the stylistic elements of the music—it has to come after '77, probably, and must somehow expand on punk rock, push it to every possible extreme to test its limitations. This album does exactly that, and more. It'll discomfort, hypnotize, confront and then ease into a groove. Very rewarding music, if you're willing to play.

Ruts DC vs. Mad Professor – Rhythm Collision Vol. 1
part 1: hxxp://www.sendspace.com/file/79gdob
part 2: hxxp://www.sendspace.com/file/ui6fpn

Though The Ruts claim to have made the first successful blend of punk and reggae on this album, The Slits and PiL obviously beat them to it, though in a very different way. This collaboration is different from the reggae-infused punk of The Clash, the dissonant dub punk of The Slits, or the minimalist post-punk of PiL, in that it most strongly recalls Can's rhythmic drones blended with a heavy dose of ska. So though they may not have been the first, they were still undeniably original and this album is their testament. It has its ups and downs, but it's still great listening.
