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:

Alot of the music mentioned here, I found terribly boring....but that's just me....although this is definitely an era that was well known and quite popular at some stage :D:D

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.
