Post-Punk is a subgenre which arose in the late 1970's at a critical moment of music cross-pollination. After the breakout of Punk on both sides of the Atlantic, many bands fused the raw energy and DIY attitude of Punk with a range of other influences including Funk, Dub, Krautrock, Electronic, and Experimental music. From 1977-1983 Post-Punk bands created some of the most influential music of the century. Post-Punk is the stripped down sound of Gang of Four and Warsaw (who went on to become Joy Division and New Order), the experimentations of Wire and Devo, the disco and dub infused sounds of The Clash and The Slits, the Goth prototypes of Bauhaus and Siouxsie, and the angular afro-inspired rhythms Talking Heads and early Thompson Twins. This is a just a small selection of Post-Punk essentials.Favourite Share
Real Groovy's Queen Street store is temporarily closed from 5pm Wednesday 25th March. But many of our staff members will be processing second-hand LPs, CDs and DVDs from home, and we will continue to list those online. We will also add new releases as the data comes through.
However we may not be able to dispatch these until the Level 4 Alert is lifted. Instead, items that you order will be set aside for you for delivery when business is back to normal.
We will not be able to enter into communication with customers, and emails will clog our system, so we encourage you to save your queries for later.
Please subscribe to our newsletter for updates, so that you know when the store and website are open for business. It's on the bottom right corner of the home page and you can always unsubscribe.
