STUPID and Contagious

Our holiday home from !

Some Seminal Post-Punk albums!

From an amazing period in music, just after the death knell of punk sounded.

So amazing that it is being copied left, right and centre in recent years by useless wanna-be bands!

Here is a great selection from innovative and influential groups such as The Wire, Gang of Four,Talking Heads,Throbbing Gristle and The Slits!

Wire-Pink Flag

The wonderful Wire with probably their greatest moment. Ask Elastica .. they ripped them off entirely!

This LP leans toward the punk end of the post punk spectrum.


Gang of Four-Entertainment!

Funk without the funk. Classic post-punk sound, delivery, production and aesthetic.


Talking Heads-The Name of This Band is Talking Heads

Yes, the Heads did once make great music!


Orange Juice-You Can’t Hide Your Love Forever

Scottish post-punk popsters supreme! Fun, poppy and a direct forebear of some sounds that would emerge from Britain in the following couple decades.


Throbbing Gristle-20 Jazz Funk Greats

The birth of industrial!

There seems to have been a giant leggy chick in the band!


The Slits-Cut

These mad bitches made great music! Post punk boobies too! What more could you ask for?

They sure could teach that cnut Courtney Love a thing or two!


Big thanks to the unblogandalou
