77-84 Post Punk Special – 06/12/11

This week I thought we’d take a rest from 2011 (as the next couple of weeks will be full of 2011 goodness), and focus on post-punk music from the years 1977-1984. Some truly brilliant and timeless music came from this period including the featured album this week which was This Mortal Coils It’ll End In Tears. Our 2bands1song this week was I Heard It Through The Grapevine covered by The Slits and Tuxedomoon.

We’ll be back next week starting our round up of what’s been great in 2011.
