Sorry, I was also thinking of doing a punk theme and had both lists open and obviously copied the wrong link.

Ash Barty - Angelique Kerber - Johanna Konta - Naomi Osaka - Nadia Petrova - Laura Robson - Aryna Sabalenka- Taylor Townsend - Heather Watson

No, I'd like to exclude post-punk revival bands.

So it's just the 0-9/Z sections of the post-punk list (the revivals acts' article is linked in the bottom section).

What, we only can pick bands from the wikipedia page? Are there ways to get around that? I have a song in mind that's from a person who was a member of a band that is on that wikipedia list. That person then formed another band...

But I see some odd bands being labeled as post punk as well. U2 for crying out loud...

Wow, looking at that list of bands I see a truckload of former nominations. Didn't realize I had sent that much post punk.

I understand what you're saying but using the Wikipedia lists, even though they probably aren't exhaustive, is the best way I know of providing a clear definition of what is acceptable and what isn't. In any event, the new band might not be a post-punk one as it might have gone in a new direction.

I had hoped it would be broader. Postpunk isn't just a British thing.

We will just get plenty of Joy divisions and Depeche Modes.
