Re: The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game 274 – Post Punk - Songs Revealed - Post 93

There's been forum problems the last few days with threads disappearing, PM's from months ago appearing in mailboxes (I had some votes for Games 270ish show up which I'd deleted ages ago).

I hope that no-one's sent and they've not been included - if that's the case it's because of the above.

Re: The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game 274 – Post Punk - Songs Revealed - Post 93

my 10 keepers:

PIL - Sex Pistols or PIL, with Lydon there's always a sense of chaos.

Pauline Murray and the Invisible Girls - totally my cup of tea, on the twee pop side of post-punk

Pere Ubu - substantial atmosphere. It's real and doesn't cheat. A sense of suffocation, of poison and depression in the air, like thick factory smokes. Trees and birds are dead. Only remains the lost human soul.

Gang of Four - I prefer this track to the previous one by a considerable margin but of course am sure the previous one will beat it since BSG players never disappoint. :eek:h:

Romeo Void - love this. Curiously the singer's voice reminds me of Courtney Barnett. Love the sax there - reminds me a bit of X-Ray Spex but more tempered (for the better).

Echo & the Bunnymen - nice track, exactly as this band is usually figured out (unlike their Crocociles first album that is unlike how they're usually figured out but interesting all the same). I like that they could do their own thing outisde the post-punk style (whose cliches aren't always avoided by, say, Gang of Four or Joy Division, you know, the robotic chords, epileptic tension, etc). There's beauty here (and again I don't care of McCulloch's persona).

Minutemen - very american, love it too. I sense humor here, and it appears all of their tracks weren't lasting more than 2 minutes as their name may indicate.

Maximum Joy - totally cool, light and colorful funk, and free sax in the mix. It's the side of post-punk that might have led to IDM (intelligent dance music).

Chameleons - don't know this band but noticed the album featuring this song was well ranked at RYM. I'm not crazy about the sound but the tune is good.

Human League - I quite like this. It sounds well written to me, with a gathering chorus. Cool and hype in the good sense of the word, in a time people still thought dancing and singing could save the world or something. ;) This will also lead to IDM and the tasty side of new wave.

Worst song of the lot goes to Teardrop Explodes.

I'm making a new friend. :lol:
