Touring the world one pair of headphones at a time...

Aug 3, 2016

Okay, okay. OKAY. I'm gonna do it. I did it. It's done. I'm settling the argument about what is and is not "post punk" and "post punk revival" in the episode of the show in which I swear the most (you've been warned - SWEARING AHEAD), because I'm sick and tired of lazy music critics being unable to discern between post-punk and garage rock (or even basic punk rock).

 

By the end of this show, you should be able to recognize key elements of the post-punk scene, and understand where it came from, where it vanished into (hint: goth-rock/new-wave) and what made it come back.

 

It's a big show, but you only get one scene show a month, so I should make them count...
