me too, along with the jesus and mary chain. Blue
yep, it became about the sound rather than the playing; thanks to them.. love the mary chain guys, too, wonder how the reunion tour is going.

statto Wrote:dome - dome 1

is incredibly fine Yes
Killing Joke - 'What's THIS for...!'

Actually, 'Turn To Red' EP is probably more canonically post-punk, on account of the reggae influence


That's about as post punk as I get Grin



Does Simple Minds - 'Empires and Dance' count as post-punk, o Stattismo-tron? Lol Sure, I know they "did an ABC" but they were quite arty starting out..


And how about Talking Heads..? Grin
Keep JUMPin ya Bastids

I figured a mention of them here might annoy you Lol

haven't heard most of those. but of my limited new wave knowledge, i like wall of voodoo - call of the west (mostly for the first few tracks on the album)
a few blondie albums came from the era too Lovesmilie

are they considered new wave?

some good ones there
interesting list Xyxthumbs

though there's some dross in there imo Wink
Sure, as always with these lists. But DNA, Native Hipsters, Delta 5, Y Pants, Throbbing Gristle ... all good.
Good to see Durutti Column in that list... Noone ever mentions them. They reminded me a bit of Dif Juz. Who noone ever mentioned ever, but they're like an instrumental Cocteau Twins when they had a more serious sound and weren't airy fairy Enya wannabes.

If you like Dome, Duet Emmo were also similar (considering it was a short lived collab between members of Dome/Wire and The Normal, this is to be expected). + 23 Skidoo \m/ . My favourite on Statts list tbh, or at least the one I've listened to most.

Probably offtopic, but I did manage to get hold of some copies of Wooden Baby stuff this week. Merv Pepler's first band (?) before the Ozrics/Eat Static and does sound very post punk/industrial. No guitar wanking. Actual vocals, unexpected changes in style and tempo, and interesting use of effects.

I preferred DC before Vini started singing Wink

all the Gilbert & Lewis stuff from back then is worth listening to Xyxthumbs
