Post Punk and the fun that followed.

This Wednesday the show is going to focus around Post Punk, No Wave, and New Wave. I have a tendency to just call all these genres Post Punk. I know that its probably wrong, and they each have unique attributes, but I’m going to lump them all together anyways. When I think Post Punk, I think unique, introverted, and experimental sound. I’m going to try to play some of the bands that defined Post Punk from the late 70s early 80s and then move into some bands that still captured a lot of that sound during the 90s and even now.

I’ll update the tracks later this week, so don’t forget to listen this Wednesday from 8 to 10pm.

So in brief, here’s what I’m thinking about playing:

1. Joy Division, Decades
2. The Fall, Barmy
3. Siouxsie and the Banshees, Hybrid
4. New Order, Confusion
5. Killing Joke, Eighties
Here’s a great video of these guys…

6. Elvis Costello, Pump it Up
7. Lords of the New Church, New Church
8. The Cure, Torture
I’ve included a music video for one of my favorite Cure tracks below.

9. Wire, 1 2 X U
This album is great, and the sound of this track is wonderful. It’s so wonderful
that Britt Daniel of Spoon attempted to cover it below:

10. Magazine, the Light pours out of me
11. Suicide, Rocket USA
12. Virgin Prunes, Sandpaper Lullaby
13. The Swell Maps, Midget Submarine

19. Spacemen3, Take me to the Other Side
20. Half Japanese, Firecracker

    Let me say, L-train sure knows her post-punk. Can I assume that is what we should address you as now?
