Weekend self-care open thread—A post-punk sampler
While the cognoscenti wax rhapsodic over the energy which punk rock brought to a sclerotic popular music scene, I was a bit too young to become fully enthralled by the Sex Pistols or the Ramones when they were au courant. But I came of musical age just after punk’s heyday and before the New Romantics such as Duran Duran and Spandau Ballet dominated the scene. Yes, I’m talking about post-punk.
Joy Division. Bauhaus. This Mortal Coil. They kept punk’s energy while once again honoring musicianship and melody. So for this weekend’s recharging thread, a bit of post-punk mania.
Happy weekend, everyone! Take care of yourselves and those around you.
