Post-Punk Appreciation Society 2008-03-17 22:41:40
This is a crew developed for those who are fans of the Post-Punk musical genre (or direct spin-offs and relatives,) to come and discuss the music, or for those who may be interested in learning more about the genre to ask questions.
1. Try to stay on the topic of post-punk or relative to post punk.
2. No flaming - Sure if you don't like a band, you can say you don't like them and why, but don't attack the person purely because your taste doesn't match his, because at the end of the day opinions are not facts.
3. If you are making a hypothetical claim, try to back it up with some form of evidence, be it factual or circumstantial.
4. If you are unsure of something, ask a question, not only will most people try to do their damnest to answer correctly, it could avoid potential embarassment. e.g. If you think a band is post punk but aren't sure, ask "is (insert band name here) post punk or not?"
5. Take someone's opinion seriously unless it is purely pathetic trolling. You are not the be all and end all of musical knowledge, comprehende?
Anyways, to join:
List your favourite post punk band and why.
Myself, I am an Echo and the Bunnymen guy. The talent of all four of the classic members (Ian McCulloch, Will Sergent, Les Pattinson and the late, great Pete de Frietas,) made songs like "The Killing Moon" (off their masterpiece album "Ocean Rain,) literally timeless and as beautiful today as back in the early 1980's.
