06.12.07: UK POST PUNK

Tonight we will be playing 2 hours of "UK POST PUNK"

As we've previously declared, the UK Punk Explosion of the late '70s opened the floodgates for many subgenres. 'Post-Punk' is yet another somewhat arbitrary term that covers a lot of different bands (generally from 1978-1982) with a lot of stylistic variation. The common thread with most of the Post-Punk bands is an adventurous (sometimes downright abstract) take on the guitar-bass-keyboard-drum formula. Tonight we'll be spinning 2 hours of U.K. Post-Punk including songs from This Heat, The Raincoats, Magazine, Public Image Ltd, Joy Division and many more.
