I like Devo quite a bit. I thought they were New Wave though?

Television.

Edit: That list before me is good, but Sonic Youth post-punk?!

Doubt it. I have my doubts about J&MC being classed as post-punk too. Fan-fucking-tastic band though.

Hmm, I'd say they were more post-punky in sound though.

i can see what your saying

#9
Talking Heads too?
I guess I've been listening to post-punk for quite some time without knowing it.

Yeah, they were classed as Punk because they originated in the punk scene, at the time of punk, but their sound is closer to that of bands like Devo or Gang of Four than it is to the Buzzcocks or Sex Pistols.

Echo & The Bunnymen own. I want to go to ATP this year and see them headline, bastard exams.

Bring on Slint in stead.

The fall are a bit of a joke.

I'd check out Siouxie and the Banshees later works, some of it is rather good.
#17

According to BS statistics, 92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you're among the 8% who doesn't consider rap to be real music, donate your brains, as you clearly aren't using them.

Pretty much the same as the above poster, with the exception of ASF (don't like them) and Danse Society (simply haven't heard them yet)

I too love post-punk and gothic rock. Daniel Ash is my favourite guitarist ever.

Thanks

(the quote didn't come out in the previous reply I made. :P
#28
Sorry for double post, but does anyone know any gear (guitars, pedals, amps, anything!) that would help me attain some kind of uber-distorted deathrock sound? Along the lines of Danny Ash and Rikk Agnew.

I know Ash used Fender Telecasters and HH amps, but anyone got any extra info, especially seeing as those amps are no longer being made

i don't classifiy The Minutemen (who are my favorite band btw) as post punk, their sound was very raw BUT i can see how someone could, the jazz-funk-punk feel that post ounk sometimes has, The Minutemen have

I forgot about the Urinals (first name of 100 Flowers). They're really good.
#31
I'm probably very wrong, but doesn't post mean after?
Doesn't that insinuate punk is dead?

Yeah, I was gonna mention them but most of their stuff is straight up lo-fi punk.

Damn, I really need to get hold of their cd. I can't see it anywhere. But then again I have most of it downloaded.

Nope, it just means that it was the next musical stage after punk.

To be honest, I haven't listened to any of their stuff under the name 100 Flowers. Any song recommendations?
