Default Post Punk...

by this I mean the umbrella term for all those thousands of late 70's and 80's bands, the world over, that owe their existence to punk's demolition of the rules. The clean slate etc.
here are some of my favourite bands and some respective videos to get the ball rolling innit

apologies for the overload btw, i can't sleep..

Wire - Practice Makes Perfect


the Gun Club - fire spirit (apparently Nikki Six 'borrowed' the singer's look)


Public Image Ltd - Poptones


Tappi Tíkarrass - Dúkkulísur (Björk's first band)


Delta 5 - Mind your own business


Þeyr (pronounced theyr) - "Rúdolf"


the Monochrome set - Jet Set Junta

yeah man, it's all good in the hood.

if I was made to pick a favourite genre, I'd probably say post-punk even though it is an umbrella term rather than an actual sound. It's not like This Heat share much in common sonically with Wire, for example...but both are the ****.

my top 5 post punk bands...

1. The Fall
2. Wire
3. This Heat
4. Pere Ubu
5. The Birthday Party

it depends how far we're stretching the boundaries of post-punk though. But it all rules mostly.

Post-punk is one of the genres I've really been getting into lately. Minutemen and Joy Division are definitely my favourites of the lot, but I've also been listening to Public Image Ltd, The Fall, Swans and the Cocteau Twins etc.

I'm gonna get hold of some This Heat because they look particularly interesting.

The Feelies were the first post punk band I fell in love with.

haha. PiL got me into dub and reggae.
Metal Box is amazing, there's no mid-range on it, just scythe guitars and throbbing basslines...

PiL and the Pop Group opened my mind to dub and reggae, although I still don't really know much about those genres -- I like Lee "Scratch" Perry a lot though.

There's some really incredible basslines on Metal Box. Lots of post-punk bands had great bassists...Gang of Four, PiL, Joy Division, The Pop Group. I saw Gang of Four live 2 years ago, that was dynamite. They were probably the first post punk band I listened to, it was awesome to see them live although the vocalist was hammered. They had great presence and energy, and of course they're all very talented musicians as well. It was fantastic.
