No, it's not "punk"...it's "post-punk"
POST /post/ preposition - subsequent to; after.
I guess...If you'd like. I think New Wave tends to lean heavier on synths, electronic drums, haircuts, and futurism....Missing Persons, Flock Of Seagulls, Gary Numan, etc...
Of course, you could also dismiss all of these genre definitions as rock critic BS, and you'd be mostly right....but that sucks all the fun out of the conversation, doesn't it.
these guys were great if you 've never checked them out.
I still listen to that album
I define post-punk as bands that came after punk, weren't punk but musically had their roots there.
I was there, so I should know...
Also, Screaming Blue Messiahs should have a mention:
..as should The Godfathers:
Punk by nature was, is and always will be loud, angry and rebellious.
The record industry tried to sell New Wave and various wimpy pop bands as "punk". The fashion industry tried to sell punk as fashion.
Carnivore became Type O.
Plasmatics. Follow that!
Wendy O. in granny panties. That's as presentable as she got.
No Wendy O, no Miley Cyrus. So Miley Cyrus is post punk.
I emerged into the glaring daylight one Sunday afternoon after Hardcore Matinee at CBGB. It would have been 1986. Walked into Tower Records. They had Metallica, "Master of Puppets" in the bin. That's when hardcore punk went mainstream.
Moshpits form organically at various metal concerts. That's the real "post punk".
I think that is a very good definition in itself.
Post punk was 78-80.
Come on The Mighty Lemon Drops!
This is it
Someone stop this thread.
It's just getting silly now!
Time for this then?
I’m fans of a lot of these, Gang of Four definitely one of my faves. But some I never heard!
To get technical Fugazi would be one of the first “post-hardcore” bands...but let’s not get technical! I love fugazi and my fellow band mates and I Are all on a fugazi kick lately so they definitely apply for my purposes...
I of course didn’t mean to stir a genre debate, a lot of you knew what I meant by “post-punk”, and I certainly think there is cross over with a lot of the other genres (new wave, disco, ska, no-wave, indie etc...). You can make arguments in any genre.
I started the post to see
What kind of stuff would come out of the woodwork. A meeting of the minds if you will, lots of good stuff!
Some of you headier aficionados should consider making Spotify playlists in the future, would love to hear everyone’s take on the era/genre.
bow wow wow
Ooh! Ooh! I wanna play! Do these fit the bill, or am I way off-base?
I don’t know, I consider the Plimsouls and the Replacements post punk and they are two of my favorites
Is there a set year that it’s excepted that punk began? Somebody mentioned Devo. Devo has been around since 1973 I consider them punk. What about the New York Dolls, and THe Stooges?
genres are useless. Instead of arguing about what’s this out that or what is good or bad why don’te we all just plug in or guitars and make some noise we like.
Most folks I think agree on a date of somewhere between '75 - '77, but further agree the roots actually went back to the mid-60's garage rock bands.
Genre's can be useful in weeding out the chaff when you are looking for a specific sound or attitude, but yeah, most folks I've ever known haven't been single-minded about music, even when espousing a preference. My grandfather was pure refined electric country (Carl Perkins, Roy Clark, Chet Atkins, etc.), but thought Iron Butterfly was downright interesting.
