    Over these last 2 days I've been on a Post-Punk kick; I've got a great CD with: The Psychedelic Furs, Modern English, The Cure, OMD...(aka: Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark), Tears for Fears, The Talking Heads, U2, etc; etc. All great tunes that bring back some great memories from the 80's.:bow:

    Anyone else here a Post-Punk fan?

    hahaha, I totally forgot about the Violent Femmes.
    ...For some reason I thought Erasure was considered a "Post-Punk" group but I guess I was wrong!:laugh:

    Gasp! Choke, even! And you call yourself an American? :shake: Why don't you just wave a white flag and yell, "Fuque you, I surrendaire!"

    Alternatively, check this out; it was their last single produced before the breakup last year:

    Really? I suppose I can see where you're coming from; I think Post-Punk is a required taste.:lol:
    ...I didn't like all of it that's for sure but those groups that did grab my attention, I loved and still do.

    ...I didn't mind Ray Lamontange's version that much. It was definitely better than the one from the Violent Femmes!:laugh:
