Well he's already an established douchebag, so I hope it's something good.

43 : Post Punk

I love post punk

If you think of it as a genre then it's one of the most diverse out there. And it's so simple to get it right. Taking it's name literally it means 'after punk' which in my definition means take any type of music and inject a punk like attitude into it and you end up with post punk.
I have tons of great albums from this period (Say 1978-85) mixing punk with jazz (Blurt) punk with krautrock (The Fall) punk with electronica (Throbbing Gristle, Cabaret Voltaire) punk with psychadelia (Husker Du and early Flaming Lips) punk with dub (P.I.L.), punk with glam rock (Lords Of The New Chruch) punk with prog , (The Cardiacs) ,punk with funk (A Certain Ratio) and even punk mixed with pop itself ***
The list goes on and on and on. All the energy of punk but with something more musically substantial than punk itself.

So what is it doing in this list ?

One thing I have noticed is that this wideness of interpretation of what post punk is is also it's downfall because people will label any old shit from the early 80s as post punk.

As i'm always on the lookout for bands from this era nothing disheartens me more than when I come across somebody heralding some album as a lost post punk classic only to listen to the thing with horror only to discover that I am listening to YET ANOTHER jangly Bunnymen/Chameleons hybrid

Now I have nothing against either of those bands as I happen to like both of them quite a lot. It's just I am so bored of listening to so many of these 'undiscovered gems' only to discover that 2 seconds into the first song I get that familiar ringing of a jangly guitar intro followed by some morose singer crooning some baritone like dirge with no hint of any punk like attitude anywhere. There really must have been a factory churning out these kind of bands around 1982 because i've discovered and deleted fucking hundreds of them. Can't we just call them jangly indie bands because thats what they are , they're even on independent labels too so why not?
Just save me the effort of having to delete yet another 'forgotten post punk classic' off my hard drive.
Thanks.


***-(Listen to Orange Juice's The Glasgow School to hear how punk mixed with pop should really sound , i'll give you a clue , it's nothing like what punk-pop sounds like.)

42 : Idiots Who Suddenly Announce That They Like My Favourite Bands

It doesn't happen too often as I have a lot of respect for most of the people who post here *cough*. But there have been times when someone will come along with no taste whatsoever and then suddenly out of the blue claim that the love The Fall or whoever. I should be happy that someone else loves the bands I do but the reality is my first thought is 'Oh God , now i'll have to deal with that pain in the arse everytime I want to talk about a band I love'.
Sorry but there's a hierarchy involved. You don't just jump from Coldplay or Muse or U2 to The Fall , you earn it. when you have a basic knowledge of the bands of the time and opinions on other post punk albums and have shown me you've actually LIVED with these albums then maybe i'll take you seriously. Learning a few things of wiki and having the same generic opinions of the same generic albums will not convince me otherwise.

Selfish & elitist ? ... Fuck yes , but I never claimed I was the nicest person around.
