This mix is another type of retro altogether. I’m a big fan of post-punk and bands that started out punk but moved on to more interesting things after the novelty wore off. Nothing wrong with punk at all, but the bands that continued to evolve and mutate were by far the most interesting. Hence the inclusion those dreaded New Romantics, early electro/industrial AND post-punk acts in this mix, which features Fad Gadget, Front 242, Polyrock, PiL, Front 242, Blondie, even some Cramps thrown in for good measure.
This collection of retro tracks isn’t nearly obscure enough for me, but these songs are fun and most of them are instantly recognizable. You could have a nice little living room dance party going with this mix, especially if you’ve got a good supply of adult beverages available. Take a listen to AFTER THE PUNKS ARE GONE.
