Cut The Lights
“By summer 1977, punk had become a parody of itself. … The vanguard that came
to be known as “post-punk” saw 1977 not as a return to raw rock-’n-roll but the chance to make
a break with tradition, and defined punk as an imperative to constant change. … [They]
dedicated themselves to fufilling punk’s uncompleted musical revolution.”
—Simon Reynolds, from Rip It Up And Start Again
This mix collects some of my favorite post-punk (and post-punk-esque) tracks, from the heyday of 1978–82 up through the present-day revival. The tracks aren't in chronological or any other order, just one that sounded good to me.
