Favorite Punk and Post-Punk Music Thread

My favorite artists and bands probably come from a punk or post-punk influenced background. Chatting with Mannequin, whose name is derived from one of my favorite post-punk bands, Wire, it struck me that I have not been inspired to post any of my favorite songs because this genre does not appear to have it's own thread. In the spirit of the ACCs this week, this is decidedly unreasonable.

Please feel free to post your favorite punk or post-punk tunes which could include any band from the Sex Pistols, Clash, Ramones, (core punk bands) or even the New York Dolls, Stooges or Velvet Underground (pre-cursors to punk) to the post-modern punk influenced bands such as Joy Division, Wire, PIL (Public Image Limited), Magazine, Buzzcocks, Birthday Party, and beyond....

I'll start with one of my favorites:

Joy Division - Shadow Play - from Unknown Pleasures (1978)

Some great tracks here. Don't know how to post the Youtube links, but gotta add Dead Kennedys-Chemical Warfare and Siouxsie-Love In A Void!

1. Find the video on Youtube
Dead Kennedys - Chemical Warfare
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nK5fKFFqJe4&feature=related

Siouxsie and the Banshees - Love in a void - 1979
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oMT3zkLfNIM&feature=fvw

2. Click "Reply" and type

youtube and /youtube with brackets ([]) around each

3. Copy and past ONLY the characters between "v=" and "&feature" and past between the youtube brackets. So you would paste oMT3zkLfNIM for the Siouxisie "Love in a Void" song

4. If you get confused, Quote someone else's video and copy how they did it.

Here is the Siouxsie and the Banshees song:
oMT3zkLfNIM


5. Click "Quote" button and copy the format I used for the Dead Kennedy's song and then post it. :rocker2:

I was fortunate to see them live when they reformed a few years back and they were so good that I went to see them again a few days later!

I love the Chameleons and all the Mark Burgess solo music (The Sun and the Moon, Venus, Mark Burgess and The Sons of God, Birdy, Burgess and Yves, etc.). Yea, Second Skin, Soul in Isolation are both worth posting. "Singer Rule Britannia", "In Shreds" and "View From A Hill" and "Swamp Thing" and "Is it Any Wonder" are also a few of the best songs I've ever heard. There is a decent video for "Monkeyland", and i posted it first, but the sound is so quiet that you have to jack up the volume to barely hear it. There is also a decent video for P.S. Goodbye, which I like, but don't love.

I'll post Soul in Isolation with lyrics because it is one of the most shocking and original songs I've ever heard:

Mark Burgess :worship::worship: :worship:

Soul in Isolation by The Chameleons


PmXhxAK-000

Soul in isolation
I can hear you breathing down the hall
Soul in isolation
I can hear you whispering through the walls
And if I had a mind to now
I could call to you
Or I could simply shut you out
No more would you cry, cry, cry....

I'll give you my time to kill
But you'll never never
Break my will
Or I could sink a sleeping pill
And in the morning could be
Sleeping still
But most of you are much too ill
Way beyond a surgeon's skill
In bondage to a dollar bill
What more can you buy? buy? buy?

Oh, when you think on it
when you think on it
We're all
Souls in isolation
Alive in here
I'm alive in here
I'm alive in here
Alive!

Come here
A word in your ear
You can't go back to the trees

Big bad giant standing tall
Crushing all the creatures
Great and small
I'd like to see this giant fall
When will it come
Words that rattle round my head
Struck by lightning someone said
A diamond bullet through the head
Hits me right in the brain
Are they right in the brain?
Are they right in the brain?

Will I see the jailer's face
Did my mother bring me to this place
Will I live to see his face
Or will another come to take my place
In total isolation
Surrounded by fears
From too many clowns
Too many tears
Isolation
Surrounded by crowds
In another world
Head in the clouds

I'm alive in here
I scream
But you still don't hear
I'm alive in here
I'm alive
Turn on the lights
Turn on the light....

Oh, when you think on it
We're all souls in isolation
I'm alive in here
I'm alive

We're always searching for something
Searching, searching
Dear dear dead days I'm longing for you
Sweetest virgin
Now deflowered

great postpunk album before they change direction towards shoegaze

dgCoHlIkHcU



This is fantastic, Mannequin! "Treasure" has been my favorite Cocteau Twins album and has aged well whereas other albums have not. This reminds me more of "Treasure" than their later albums, although it is even less like their shoegazing sound than the songs on that album. I have their late 80's and early 90's albums and liked them a lot at the time although they did get old pretty fast. I had no idea they had more of a post-punk sound before "Treasure". I'll check the earlier albums out. Great song! :yeah:

Speaking of 4AD bands, love The Birthday Party, This Mortal Coil, and Throwing Muses (earlier stuff mostly).

Great song as is pretty much the entire Pink Flag album, but "Mannequin" hinted at their next album. I don't think that "Chairs Missing" gets quite the credit it deserves because it was the "transitional" album between "Pink Flag" and "154", but I think I may play it more often than the other two. An example of the brilliance from that album:

Wire - Practice Makes Perfect - from Chairs Missing (1978)

The peak of the Brix years:

L.A. by the Fall (1985) from "This Nation's Saving Grace"

:lol: We posted the exact same video at exactly the same time. I'm going to have to find another one. :lol:

Man, it was a real chore finding a video as good as L.A. by the Fall. This one is interesting though. This is "Wings" from "Perverted by Language" (1983) and was the first album Brix played on, so her influence is just starting to seed. I thought this would be a good "middle piece" from "Elastic Man" to "L.A." (one of my faves and a great video!)

I'm not sure I've heard a song capture the claustrophobia so well, the simultaneous agoraphobia (fear of leaving familiarity) and eicophobia (fear of home surroundings) in the song is haunting and the production for emoting those feelings is eloquent and disturbing.

I posted the Chameleons "Soul in Isolation" which is similar in tone a few pages back...but just the song with the album cover and lyrics because I love the studio version so much. Here it is live though, and you can see that Mark Burgess resonates the same feelings as Seigmen:

I thought this link would be helpful for anyone coming across a punk band they don't know yet:
Trouser Press Guide (http://www.trouserpress.com)
http://www.trouserpress.com

It is considered "The Bible" of punk, indie and underground bands, and has been around since the punk scene developed.

For example, to read about The Specials (http://www.trouserpress.com/entry.php?a=specials) and their contribution to punk/post-punk music:

And punk connoisseurs like AJ once again provide a reason why this guide is so handy. :lol:

Fishbone (http://www.trouserpress.com/entry.php?a=fishbone)
http://www.trouserpress.com/entry.php?a=fishbone

"When they were just high-school students riding the desegregation bus from South Central Los Angeles to the San Fernando Valley, the members of Fishbone were collectively hooked by the Funkadelic song "Who Says a Funk Band Can't Play Rock" and the bold endorsement of musical genre- blending the title implies. It became their manifesto; early on, some would label Fishbone a ska group incorporating other styles, but the band's stew of funk, soul, punk, metal, jazz, reggae and seemingly everything else musical is far more distinctive — and exciting — than simple categorization allows. As Fishbone tried to explain in one of its songs, the group set out to create a "brand new nutmeg."

On the Fishbone EP, their sense of humor is surpassed only by the six tracks' non-stop hyperkinetic energy. Whether the lyrics are socially relevant ("Another Generation" and especially "Party at Ground Zero") or just plain silly ("Ugly"), the vim and vigor level is maintained. If you can sit still throughout this, you're probably dead.

.....

"Shot in the foot by poor sequencing and a baffled record company, the brilliant Truth and Soul should have been Fishbone's breakthrough. While the first side is distinguished only by a scorching metallic cover of Curtis Mayfield's "Freddie's Dead," the second half is a dazzling grand-slam of the band's vibrant stylistic array. From the party anthem "Bonin' in the Boneyard" to the scalding anti- racist "Slow Bus Movin' (Howard Beach Party)," the near- hardcore of "Subliminal Fascism" to the soulful "Ghetto Soundwave" and the acoustic racial-unity ballad "Change," it updates and rivals Sly's finest work."

It's not so great for Spanish Punk I'm finding. If someone has a link to a decent guide for newbies like me to many of these bands, please provide. Thanks.

In their early years, Roxy Music with Bryan Ferry and Brian Eno revolutionized pop music and in much the same way as the New York Dolls and David Bowie, they influenced punk music and heavily influenced post-punk. For me, their first four albums are all stunning masterpieces. This was from their first album:

Roxy Music - Ladytron 1973

zVeEBMJt8vs

http://www.trouserpress.com/entry.php?a=roxy_music

Arguably the most influential rock group of the '70s, Roxy Music's impact has only grown in the years since the punk return-to-the-basics ethos gave way to a growing interest in high style, fashion and musical sophistication. The "new romantic" movement and the synth fops would have had no historical traditions to follow were it not for the pioneering efforts of Bryan Ferry, Brian Eno, Phil Manzanera, Andy Mackay, Paul Thompson and their various cohorts. Even though Roxy Music grew pale and timid in its later years, the recorded work (not to mention the countless side projects in which the various members have participated) stands as a seminal wellspring of nonconformity and successful art-pop experimentation.

Dedicated to Clydey:

u81Phfuih4Y

I shake my head and shiver
They smile
And then stab me in the back
as they shake my hand

Send out an SOS plea
Come quickly
I'm marooned in monkeyland.

Is there anyone there
Who understands me
Anyone at all

I'm idly staring at the sky
Did anybody hear me sigh
A million stars are a moving sight
To all you out there
Reading this tonight

It's just a trick of the light
It's just a trick of the light
I have to know what is real
And what is illusion
Tell me how does it feel
Beyond this confusion
Is there anyone there?

Do I dismiss this with a sigh
Suppose I must from time to time
And let the answers pass me by
To questions set to bend the mind
Is my creator a God or a man
Yes both too
Does someone somewhere
Care or understand?

It's just a trick of the light
I have to know what is real
And what is illusion
Tell me how does it feel
Beyond this confusion?

Is there anyone there?
Is there anyone there?
Life's an optical illusion
Like other optical illusions
Beware....
If there's anyone there
