     Home | Music Genre | Post-punk

Post-punk is a rock music movement with its roots in the late 1970s, following on the heels of the initial punk rock explosion of the mid-1970s. The genre retains its roots in the punk movement but is more introverted, complex and experimental. Post-punk laid the groundwork for alternative rock by broadening the range of punk and underground music, incorporating elements of Krautrock (particularly the use of synthesizers and extensive repetition), Jamaican dub music (specifically in bass guitar), American funk, studio experimentation, and even punk's traditional polar opposite, disco, into the genre.

It found a firm place in the 1980s indie scene, and led to the development of genres such as gothic rock, industrial music, and alternative rock.

Their first album, Three Imaginary Boys (1979), and early singles placed them as part of the post-punk and New Wave movements that had sprung up in the wake of the punk rock revolution in the United Kingdom. During the early 1980s the band's increasingly dark and tormented music helped form the gothic rock genre. After the release of 1982's Pornography, the band's future was uncertain and frontman Robert Smith was keen to move past the gloomy reputation his band had cultivated. With the 1982 single "Let's Go to Bed" Smith began to inject more of a pop sensibility into the band's music. The Cure's popularity increased as the decade wore on, especially in the United States, where the songs "Just Like Heaven", "Lovesong" and "Friday I'm in Love" entered the Billboard Top 40 charts. By the start of the 1990s, The Cure were one of the most popular alternative rock bands in the world and have sold an estimated 27 million albums as of 2004.As of 2007, The Cure have released twelve studio albums and over thirty singles, with a thirteenth album due in October 2008.

EDIT: For those who are interested in downloading the 'Youth' song from the Dutch band Kensington: Alrighty then, these are my favorite songs from a certain genre I usually listen to. Could probably be described the best as 'indie rock'. I don't care if the term 'indie' is misused (As in some of these bands being part of a major recordlabel, I just don't give a crap so keep those comments to yourself).. If you disagree or agree or whatever, feel free to comment =). Tell me what you think ^^ 10. The Courteeners - Not nineteen forever 9. Kensington - Youth 8. Foals - Balloons 7. The Subways - Burst 6. We Are Scientists - It's a hit 5. Arctic monkeys - Still take you home 4. The Bravery - Unconditional 3. The Killers - Somebody told me 2. Bloc party - Banquet 1. The Strokes - Reptilia

SPECIMEN were a glam horror post-punk band, who became most known for launching the 'Batcave' club in London around 1982 or so. The club became a fertile dark arts club where interesting artists of the time would perform to the nightlife in-crowd. It was just the new hip post-punk scene; only in retrospect tagged 'goth'. They signed to London Records, first releasing a now rare Batcave compilation (Test Dept, Patti Palladin, Brilliant, etc) and some singles which became a mini-album on Sire in USA. But the success of the club maybe was a distraction. Later they had releases on Flicknife. All their recordings, including the 12" version of KKBB can be found on the Jungle CD 'Azoic' FREUDCD054.

Swans were an influential American rock, experimental and post-industrial band active from 1982 to 1997, led by singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Michael Gira. Swans were one of the few groups to emerge from the New York No Wave scene intact. The band was formed in 1982 by Michael Gira, and employed a shifting lineup of musicians until their dissolution in 1997. Besides Gira, the only other semi-constant members were keyboardist/vocalist Jarboe, and, to an extent, guitarist Norman Westberg. Experimental Art rock Noise rock Post-industrial Post-punk No Wave
